Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, back in my undergrad I took an Anthropology course on cultures. It was hands down the best course I took during my undergrad. I mean, it was fantastic. It made me want to be an anthropology major, that's how good it was.
Unfortunately, it was the last class I took, as I graduated that semester.
Ever since then, I've kind of regretted not pursing it. I am now at an interesting place where I can actually pursue a degree in Anthropology, followed perhaps by a Masters or PhD, from a University that is actually pretty well respected in the field. I would jump right into the PhD, but since I need to make up deficiencies anyway, I can pretty painlessly just get a BA while I'm at it.
Oh, and it would all be free. Except that it would also be a lot of work, which I'm not unwilling to do, I just don't know if I should.
So, my question now becomes... should I pursue this? I'm not incredibly familiar with the career options open to an Anthropologist, especially one interested in Archeology or Bioarchiology. I don't want another useless degree, but man, I can't stop thinking about it.
TLDR: Should I go back to school for Anthropology? And also, "It belongs in a museum!"
