Hi everybody! My name is Antonio Siciliano and I’m a junior majoring in anthropology as well as double minoring in linguistics and Arabic. Since I’m an anthropology major it’s pretty clear as to why I’m taking the class, but medicine and culture have become interests of mine over the last year or so. Education is my life!! I aspire to be a professor and researcher of foreign languages and peoples, focusing on their interaction compared to ours.
This is a picture of Amman, Jordan which is a study abroad offered here at MSU. No, I haven’t made it there yet, but it is my dream to go while I’m still an undergrad.
Grad school is definitely on the horizon and I’m so excited to see how things turn out. Since it’ll most likely be very competitive I’m still deciding if I will stay an extra year and get a second bachelors degree in Linguistics. The nice thing about that would be that I can use both my knowledge of people and language to study and work within my field before I get into a grad program. What is the downside to that? Debt, the inevitable of course. Trying to figure out if it’s worth it to stay will be a task, but hey, I’m a young strapping lad with a few years of college under his belt. One thing is for certain, though. I know what I want to do and I will most definitely give it my all!
