hi everyone, I'm Ira, currently I'm in the fifth semester, I study English education in a collage in my city. I'm going to apply for UGRAD 2013.
but, I find difficulty in choosing the field of study.
my major is English Education.
what do you think? would you like to give me suggestion in choosing two field of study in the application form? what major should I take if I study English education??
thanks in advance!
This is the first question you have to unsver in your statement of purpose essay. It should come from your very personal experience. Otherwise I might advice to go for rocket engineering! But you wouldn't like it right? However it should come from you.
aye, really agree to this advice
you would better if the answer come from your own,cuz only you know your self
i mean, the field of study that's related with my current major now T_T, I don't have any idea about it,..
TEFL? ESL? or american studies? hehe
hi ira! i think if you're having trouble deciding what field of study to take, you should sit down and think about your future goals. where do you want to be 5 years from now? do you want to be teaching? there is a lot you can do with english education so i would encourage you to really think about what you want to do with your studies. from there, you'll be able to see what fields of study will suit you the best!
thank you Melisaa ^_^
I think in your case the most relevant majors would be "Education" and "U.S. studies." You can choose Education because it's your major back home and you can learn a lot about US educational system and how Americans teach at schools or universities. Also another field of study can be U.S. studies. Under UGRAD program my major was U.S. studies and I can say that I got much information about US history, culture and other aspects of American life choosing this major. The U.S. studies major will help you as you are an English language teacher to understand better American lifestyle because one of the part of you future profession demands from you to know American culture.
thank you Anzor! it helps me so much :D i will write it..as i plan before
