  1. I am a journalist, editor and social media person (I enjoy the first two, the third not so much). I plan to enter grad school in sociology so I can become a sociologist slash researcher. Might even go down the academia route, who knows. My other ambitions are 1) book author 2) an English teacher who travels all around the world teaching young adults I am also interested in becoming a political scientist or a development expert.
  2. Does journalism count as a "fluff" program? It was an expensive degree, but my dad paid for my tuition. I am now working two jobs: as a part-time writer for a non-profit media group (which pays too little, considering I have 10 years of working experience + 2 experience as an editor), and I also work as the social media person for my friend's beauty business (which pays ok, considering how little updating I have to do). I don't have any regrets, except that I wish I did better in pre-university (I am from Malaysia, where we have programs like A Level, and diplomas. I did A Level) so that I cold have joined a sociology degree program, or political science at a reputable public uni. The university I went to was overpriced (like I said above) and wasn't so academically challenging, but looking back at it now I am glad that I went there anyway because of the strong industry connections that the university had, which helped me land a prestigious internship at a top news organisation (that internship later was translated into a permanent job position.) Hope this answers your questions. Feel free to ask me anything!
  3. Hi all, I'm looking up programs in the UK that touch on gender, and so far I have stumbled upon these three that look intriguing: 1) Gender and Women's Studies and Sociology MA @ Lancaster University: https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/postgraduate-courses/gender-and-womens-studies-and-sociology-ma/ 2) MSc Applied Gender Studies Masters Degree @ University of Strathclyde: https://www.strath.ac.uk/courses/postgraduatetaught/appliedgenderstudies/ 3) MLitt, MSc Gender Studies (Applied) @ University of Stirling: https://www.stir.ac.uk/courses/pg-taught/communications-media-culture/gender-studies/ Don't ask me why I'm not planning to apply for higher-tiered schools (I only have a GPA of 3.2 in journalism, though I do have 10 years of advocacy experience in women's rights). Thoughts on my school options? How good are these schools - what are their strengths and weaknesses.
