  1. I figured that there's no thread for the East Asian Languages and Cultures 2019-2020 cycle. I hope everyone's doing well, and feel free to post anything related to the EALC application cycle under this thread!
  2. I had an underwhelming GPA in a difficult major from a top 10 but underrated public research university. I'm also in my late 30s - I've been thinking of grad/professional school for a long time, but I know it will be very challenging, and may not be worth it.For a while now, I'm been thinking of applying to the M.A. in Asian Studies at UC Berkeley and the M.A. in Asia Pacific Studies at University of San Francisco. I'd much prefer Asian American Studies, but very few schools offer an M.A. in that - the closest one seems to be UCLA, and I'd like to stay local and commute to school. There's an M.A. in Asian American Studies at SF State, but I know that SFSU doesn't have anywhere near the name recognition of UCB. My goals for those programs is to write, get published, be a "thought leader" (sorry if it sounds arrogant; it's not meant to be) in Asian or Asian American Studies, maybe lecture, and possibly teach in some capacity. My main goal would be to be a published author, whether through books, articles, journal papers, online digital content, etc. I just think of these master's programs as giving me a jumping point into what I want to do. I'd also love to go through the grad school experience - it would probably be very personally enriching. Also, like many people, I've always thought I would go to grad school, and it would be great to go to grad school at a top university. Any thoughts on the M.A. in Asian Studies at Berkeley, the M.A. in Asia Pacific Studies at USF, or the M.A. in Asian American Studies at SFSU? Has anyone gone through those programs, or know people who have completed them? How hard is it to get into those 3 programs? What is it like taking those programs, what do you learn or get out of it, what are the courses/students/professors like, and what do students do after they get their M.A.? Any other schools/masters programs you can recommend to me that are in the Bay Area, close to San Francisco? I'm also open to online masters programs, but there are hardly any offered in these fields, and they're from no-name and questionable schools.
  3. Hi everyone! I recently applied to sociocultural anthropology masters programs as well as east asian studies masters programs because I was interested in studying east asian countries through an anthropological lens. I was accepted into Duke (interdisciplinary), Columbia(socio anthro), Oxford (socioanthro), and UPenn(east asian). I already rejected UPenn because their east asian studies program seemed to be focused on history whereas I wanted to focus more on contemporary. To be honest though, I am not completely set on whether or not I want to study east asian cultures just yet and was hoping I could figure that out in the master's program before I apply for PhD in the US for anthro (which is the plan for the future). I've been getting different advice from different professors and different PhD students about their experiences so it's been really hard for me to choose, especially because I don't want to regret my choice later. On the one hand, Duke seems to be a good choice because I know they are known for race and gender within the anthro department and that's something I'm really interested in and would allow me to work with great advisors. Not to mention that the interdisciplinary would give me a chance to study race/gender in East Asian countries. But on the other hand, Columbia and Oxford would allow me to look at things in a broader perspective- afterall, I AM Asian American so wouldn't the interdisciplinary track kind of make me look like I tried to find the easy way out as a potential PhD candidate later? I'm so conflicted and would love the general opinions about the anthro masters programs in these schools. I really appreciate it everyone :) thank you in advance!!!!

    Am I aimming to high?

    I'm currently in the process of thinking about my potential PhD schools and programs that I'd want to apply with once I finish my Masters in East Asian Studies (which I will begin this Fall at Rutgers University). I've attended NYU with a major in Chinese language & cultures and a double minor in Korean and Japanese language and cultures (3.62 GPA), as well as having attended ICLP at NTU for a year. My main interest is Chinese modern -history (1900s - present) and Chinese (and Japanese!) literature. I'm an Caucasian, American citizen living in NJ. I'm wondering if my hopes to go to an Ivy league for my PhD program might be a bit too high?
  5. Hi everyone! I posted here before but I have an update on my decisions... a. Tuition grant + living stipend (it's a small amount=$5000) for 2 years at the RSEA M.A. program at Harvard b. Tuition+living stipend (12K)for my first year but I would have to TA every year (guaranteed TA-ship for only 4 years) at the EALC PhD program at UCSB Thanks! I'm having trouble deciding however...
  6. Hi everyone, I'm an international student (UK) at Oxford, I've just been accepted onto the two programmes I applied for, EAS at Yale and MAPSS at Chicago. I've only been to Chicago briefly, it seemed really cool, but from what I've seen it seems like the course is better at Yale. The only problem is I've been offered a 2k scholarship from Yale vs. a 40k scholarship from Chicago. I'm really praying they will offer me more funding at Yale, although my course director says this is unlikely (maybe because I'm an international student?). Does anyone have any thoughts about the two campuses? Chicago seems like it has more going on, but I might be wrong? Any advice greatly appreciated! Best Regards, Alex
  7. I've recently been accepted to Columbia's East Asian Languages and Cultures M.A program and Stanford's East Asian Studies program. I just cannot decide! My research interest is comparative literature between China and Korea, both schools have professors that I would love to work with but one of my concerns are that some are on leave. I'm still deciding on whether I will proceed to Phd therefore this master program would mean a lot to me. Would love to hear anyone's experience or suggestions!
  8. I'm recently admitted to Stanford's M.A East Asian Studies program and Columbia's East Asian Languages and Cultures M.A program. I am now struggling to choose between the two. My research interest is contemporary Chinese and Korean comparative literature. I understand my research area is very specific and both schools have professors who I would love to work with. However some of them are on leave. I would love to hear anyone's experience in the same major in Columbia or Stanford or any suggestions on how to make a choice for my M.A decision.
