Hello Farzana, How does Data Science Bias and Artificial Intelligence relate in Cognitive Testing
Gidelis Vega
53:29
Dr. Kiessling I also have some background in environmental studies, I wanted to know if you hand any advice for students trying to pursue a career in Environmental studies with an anthropological background ?
Isaiah Herrero
54:09
For qualitative research how much quality needs to be given in order to determine whether or not its worth anything of value? Or would that apply for quantitative research?
Benson Michel
56:55

“Interdisciplinary” means that it combines different fields of study such as Biology and Anthropology. GSS combines anthropology, geography and sociology. Often you have to major only one.
Brittany Kiessling
01:02:03
I wanted to add another response to Gidelis's question. If you're interested in an environmental anthropology career another suggestion is to gain experience through internships. I had several internships at environmental non-profit organizations. That really gave me great work experience I could put on my resume.
Gidelis Vega

For Emily: During your fieldwork, how were you able to submerge yourself into poverty life style?
Sarah Mahler
01:13:33
“Applied” anthropology or sociology means that you use your training to address real world problems and not necessarily just work in a university teaching students!
Sarah Mahler
01:14:48
People who work in “applied” work generally report behind more satisfied with their careers than those who work as professors in universities!
Katie Rainwater
01:16:51
One of the issues people often raise about working in academia is a lack of work-life balance, I'm wondering if the speakers could address this aspect of their work as well.
Sarah Mahler
01:16:53
“Adjunct” means a professor who teaches courses but does not have a full-time position as a professor
Dennis Wiedman
01:25:01
Good to hear from our graduates working in the applied careers. Got to go. Bye
