In the Fall I am taking at least:
1) Forensic Anthropology (so much fucking excitement, especially since the professor and me are like bff’s after speaking once, it’s in the big arch lab, and she was trained as a bioarchaeologist, which is exactly what I want to do!
2) Theory in Sociocultural anthropology, this class is a major requirement but everyone in my lab class right now is taking it in the fall, and it’s with my favorite professor I have now every single semester haha, plus theory is always lovely for me.
3) Directed study with the professor I am going to Belize with, on whatever topic I want within the Maya and the dig. She is a ceramist so she thinks I should do a lab report and analysis of some of the pottery we will probably find.
I am super excited for these 3 at least, the directed study I won’t decided specifics for another couple weeks, I need a research plan first haha, pumped for the fall semester though!
Archaeology method and theory with lab, two time blocks this morning.
Excited and nervous! Hoping my knowledge of archaeology will suffice.
I am not to nervous though, I mean I have done a lot of my studies in Archaeology, just never in method or the scientific side.
Also glad, I am a now a couple classes deep in Biological Anthropology because it should help with this (minus the geoscience and chemistry, haha)
Aww well, still pumped! : D
First day so exciting!
A Biocultural Approach to Warfare
Peoples and Cultures of Mesoamerica
Rise and Fall of the Maya
So much excitement. My heart. :)
I did so much to get ready for the start of classes tomorrow!
I also worked!
My room is super clean and organized! :)
I did all my laundry, bought snacks and healthy food for lunches and snacks!
I am really excited for this semester.
5 Anthropology classes, 6 time blocks and lab.
What more could an aspiring Anthropologist ask for?
I love you all, wish me luck!
Less than a week <3
So excited for classes to come back :)
6 books, 6 time blocks, 5 classes, 5 days a week.
Should be fun!
I am taking 4 classes Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Four, 50 minute classes in a row from 10:00AM to 2:00PM.
I just lost my job and decided to stick with unemployment for this semester so I can focus on studies (aka get all A’s not one A, two B’s and C.) because work killed me the last semester.
I have so much free time now though I am considering a 5th class.
It is Archaeology Method and Theory with a Lab. So its 4 credits and its Tuesdays and Thursdays for two of the time blocks at my school from 9:30AM to 12:15PM.
I heard it is pretty difficult but I think it would be a good time to take it now.
The other anthropology 4 classes are: Peoples and Cultures of Mesoamerica, Rise and Fall of the Maya, Primate Behavior and A Biocultural approach to warfare.
Any thoughts guys? It would be great to get some more credits, since I am like done with my Gen eds and my major but still need to like 55 credits haha
So there is two classes, both count as a humanities and United States elective and would help me to be even closer to being done. Both are at the same time and it’s probably a good idea to just take one and get it out of the way. My options are:
AMST- 206 The Sixties (American Studies)
PHIL- 108 Moral and Social Problems (Philosophy)
Going to the Biological Anthropology lab tomorrow !
Going to examine and play with real and reconstructed remains of lots of different primates and hominins.
Most excited for: Tarsiers, lorises, austrapolithicus africanus and afarensis, homo habilis and homo Neanderthal.
Nerding out tomorrow :)
