  1. I was recently accepted into the New School for Social Research's MA in sociology with a 30% scholarship. Initially excited about the New School, on top of the cost of living in New York City, the $40,000 tuition price tag makes this a little less appealing to me (on the other hand, this is about what I expected for an MA program). I also realized, rather belatedly, that the MA in sociology does not require that students write a thesis, but instead complete an MA Examination. I was also accepted at Binghamton for their Ph.D., albeit without an offer of funding as of yet. Does anyone kn
  2. hj2012; Thanks for the very thoughtful response to my question. You're absoultely correct - perhaps my interests are a bit broad. It's interesting that you'd mention Chibber, as I find NYU's sociology program to be one of the ideal programs I could be accepted to. Although, I don't know if my broad interests are necessarily a bad thing, and my opinion on this has recently made me seek out media studies programs in the United States that incorporate an interdisciplinary focus. I am interested mainly in anti-capitalist struggles, how they are represented in different media, and what sort of
  3. hello! I'm new to this forum so please forgive me if this is a question that many of you have answered before. Additionally, I posted something very similar in the sociology sub-board, so please excuse the overlap. I'm curious about different fields of inquiry. I'm interested in Marxism and its more recent incarnations in social theory (post-Marxism, autonomism, empire, rethinking communism, Zapatistas, etc.) I have a social-sciences background (B.A. in psychology, with a minor in applied linguistics, however, I was interested in social psychology in my undergraduate studies) and I am i
  4. Roll Right; perhaps cultural studies would be the way to go. I'd like to go sociology if I can find and get accepted to a program that fits my interests, mostly because I think it would be better for career prospects and because its method of inquiry is rooted in social scientific approaches. for instance, Goldsmiths' sociology program seems like another ideal program, what with someone like Alberto Toscano, an active commentator on Marxist theory and sociologist. what sociology programs that are bastions of radicalism came to mind?
  5. ExponentialDecay; I took a couple of literature classes in my undergraduate career. additionally, my core studies at my undergraduate university - I attended the Portland State University Honors Program - examined a good deal of literature. it just seems like I'd have a better chance of getting into a program in the social sciences. additionally, I am interested in methods, field research, etc. but I just have a strong interest in Marxist theory. it seems confusing to me that some people who are so rigourously engaged in that field come from and are now situated in literature programs (Michae
  6. breaks0; thanks for the information! this was the kind of thread I was hoping to find. NYU does seem like an ideal program, what with its strong focus on Marxism and a solid foundation in methods. too bad it appears really hard to get into! rather ironic, actually. good luck to you, too!

Sociology seems like the proper domain in which to explore Marxism given my background in
