In an attempt to address some of these questions, NAPA interviewed eight recent anthropology Masters degree recipients to get their stories and perspectives. Their experiences reveal the diverse options and life courses that are possible with the degree.
It is hoped that these stories will help inform those currently in MA programs as to… Continue reading
