  1. These all seem very useful to me when I'm thinking of the MA as well! Thanks. Still didn't had an interview, but will post questions if it comes to that.
  2. Thank you a lot on this feedback, it is very useful! 😄 I'd just add that although it seems a bit isolated, one can easily access the San Francisco Bay Area by AMTRAK (around 50$ return ticket).
  3. @merrysoprano, I see you got accepted to HGSE AiE program! What's it like being "from the inside"? I'm also interested in those studies
  4. Totally get it. For now, PhD is off the list because it seems I'm still not ready for it. To dedicate myself to study and research smth for years, I really need to have a burning issue/research problem to start with. At this moment, an MA seems as a more practical option. I'm eyeing on Arts in Education at Harvard. Do you have any suggestions?
  5. Thanks @catsbloom, I guess mobility is important, and I'm also eyeing a couple of locations of interest at the same time... Which MLIS degree you have? There's a nice research done here analyzing the market vs studies: http://www.inthelibrarywiththeleadpipe.org/2011/is-the-united-states-training-too-many-librarians-or-too-few-part-1/
  6. @MAC2809, so sorry for not replying before, I totally missed out of the forum in the meantime (and as expected, came back when wanting to apply for graduate studies again). Big thanks!
  7. Hi everybody! I was thinking of retraining and getting into LIS field (have a BA in Art History and MA in Cultural Management from non-US universities, with experience in museums, non-profits project work and curating). The thing is, this time I need to be very careful in choosing next studies/career, because I want to avoid being unemployed or underpaid again So, what are the odds of getting a job in the field after an MA? How is the job market for librarians and related professions? P.S. Been reading data from https://www.bls.gov/ooh/education-training-and-library/librarians.htm, but interested to hear your experience
  8. Very interested did you had any feedback on this apart from the forum
  9. First post, first inquiry I'm looking for a PhD program in education: that could be open for students who don't have academic base in edu (I have a MA in Art History), programs which have a more multi-/intercultural approach, and with potential funding for international students (coming from Serbia). Considering important that the studies are not purely theoretical, rather having enough amount of practical work (I really cannot continue solely reading books and learning theories, without a clue how to do smth practical). Also hoping that the studies would give me a strong basis as an future educator/professor... My background pretty much stands in art history (studies), contemporary art, art projects and curating (experience). However, regarding edu, I do have some basis: for almost a year and a half I was working as an associate curator in an African museum, as part of the department of edu, participating in many public projects (workshops, festivals, exhibitions, panel discussions, public guidances), for different audiences (kids, students, general); I was leading a freelance curatorial project targeting art students seeking professional practice, mostly based in experiential learning/learning by doing, with a do-it-together spirit, creating exhibitions; with this project was also a guest professor/lecturer/organizer of a course at the university (although, unofficially because I was not a PhD, however was doing the whole work with a colleague, backed with two professors); and took an online course "Global education: the intercultural dimension". Apart from that, for the past a couple of years, I have been a part of several projects in the Mediterranean region, which partially inspired my quest for studies targeting the diversity of cultures. For now, I'm looking closely at USFCA's International and Multicultural Education (IME, a very nice mix of topics with good resources for practice), but surely am open for any useful tips. Thanks!!!
