First good news of the day: I can continue both Hausa and Anthropology ! Pheww what a relief.
Another news of the day: I need to close my French Bank account it is so difficult and expensive to keep up with it.
Today I have an appointment for the exhibition with Open the Gate, they are interested in helping me out.
My university results will come up on Monday (I am stressed out, especially for the anthropology part ..)
I am starting to look at universities for Masters.
What I am sure about is that:
- I want to do a Master in Photojournalism at the London College of Communication
But I also want to do a Master in Medical Anthropology, which is highly interesting, I would not be actually manipulating medical stuff but studying about it in cross-cultural context. The Master of Medical Anthropology at the Berkeley University in San Francisco would be absolutely perfect.
But this university is classified as 9th university in the world, and the course is of course highly demanding and there are lots of applicants. Plus it is quite expensive and far from Africa and Home.
There is another university I would like to attend, but it will be focused on Psychiatry, I have always been intrigued by mental illnesses. The university is situated in Cape Town, South Africa, thus I would study it in an African context (global as well of course). Psychiatry is, I believe, extremely linked with Anthropology because we need to take into account the environment in which men live in order to analyse the origin of these illnesses. You cannot deny the importance of the knowledge of the origin of the illness to cure it.
Now the question is also "in which order". Photojournalism or the other one? The thing is that I am in London now, so it would be easier to do Photojournalism first. But if I present my application for something more scientific, would they think that I'd be joking?
