Thanks for the welcome - your profile is impressive. How is the diving in Asia?
I hope to one day get to a technical/professional rating, and I too would like the Instructors certification. I see you dive with rebreathers, how is that? I am interested in the technology and have been told it is possible to dive much deeper and for longer periods of time with closed-circuit systems.
Do you dive commercially? What kinds of job opportunities are out there for someone who is interested in wreck recovery and archeology?
welcome aboard. You might look into a Anthro degree with a focus on archaeology. Or your school may have an ISS (interdisciplinary social science) so that you may focus on History Archaeology and another sub discipline . Applications for field schools are now beiing taken so you might look into it for the summer. Try the PAST foundation. I believe they are doing a school in Cali. Good luck with your classes and your diving future .
Thanks for the heads up concerning PAST; it's a little too late for me to get in this summer, but I will definately keep it in mind for next year.
Do you know the names of any other field schools? The counseling department at my college leaves a lot to be desired. Perhaps key words I would enter in to a search engine?
Welcome aboard. Use your search option here, you might find forums on the subjects you're interested in. What I have found in diving is that you need to dive to know where you want to take it. Meet people, dive with them and then go from there. I am educating myself but taking my time so that I understand my diving before I start taking courses in technical areas. Always remember, there is no rush! Just have a great time! Good luck and Happy Diving!
Well, this is the Intro forum, so a lot of folks won't see your post. Browse around....
If you haven't yet, click Forums above and start going thru the list - looking for those of interest to you, especially your local dive club. Always good to try a Search before starting a new thread, tho - click here for Search help, and be careful about posting Threads & Replies before reading the Sticky threads at the tops of most forums. PM me if I can help you around here..
hey thanks , umm just a quick look i saw a few .I think San Bernardino Its best to find the school that fits your needs then check there anthro dept. Key word searches maritime or nautical archaeology, I know California is as big as FL so I hate to say there is one at so and so and it be like 8 hours away. A good site is shovelbums.org Texas AM might run one there and im sure there are others. You can attend another schools field school and apply it to your degree at your collge just talk with your counselor.Some schools however require prerequisite courses .Anyway good luck!
