  1. How good is Harvard’s technology innovation education program and how does it compare to other programs? Also what are similar programs?
  2. Hi everyone, I have a Bachelor degree in Law in my country (2014). I intended to switch my career to either Information Technology or Finance in the U.S. However some people suggest me to take an IT concentration that links most to finance so I can balance these two majors. As we all know that IT is extremely wide so I am confused in picking up one concentration liking to finance from the listed below: - Information Assurance; - Computer Forensic Management; - Computer Security Management; - Enterprise Network Management; - Information System Management; - IT Project Management; - Software Engineering Management. Seeking for your help. Thank you all!
  3. Looking for guidance in choosing new laptop. We've had a MacBook Pro since 2011 and don't use enough of the features to justify the cost of another one! My needs are: MS Office Netflix/Hulu/Etc. streaming Reliability for interacting during live online grad school classes. Preferences are: Intel i5 or i7 SSD Comfortable keyboard 15 inch screen Any advice, warnings, and guidance are welcome! Thank you.
  4. Hi All, I'm pretty bad at navigating this site so forgive me if this thread already exists for 2018 but I've been looking at a 2015 edition of this thread and it seemed really helpful so I figured I'd start one for this year. I'm currently trying to decide between: Rutgers: Interdisciplinary. 2 years. full ride. possibility of GA positions worth 7k a semester. #20 in US News Rankings (don't know how they do these but...) University of Florida: Arts + Technology. 3 years. full ride. 22k/year teaching fellowship (20 hrs/wk). #82 in US News. USC: New Genres. 2 years. Waiting to hear back on funding. #69 in US News. Florida State University: Interdisciplinary. 3 years. full ride. 8k/year teaching fellowship (10 hrs/wk) #69 in US News. I'm currently pretty stuck between Rutgers and UF. It's hard to ignore Rutger's stature and proximity to NY but it's also hard to ignore 22k/year in Gainesville, Florida (this would feel like a fortune) and the added bonus of a 3 year program with lots of individual attention. Any input on either the specific programs or just best modes of thinking for identifying the right school would be super appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  5. The writing task is about the following:"As people rely more and more on technology to solve problems, the ability of humans to think for themselves will surely deteriorate.""Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position."My Response:"Since the second half of the 20th century, the technological inventions become more and more vital in people's life. Technology help people overcome the climate changes, solve complicated problems and even innovate more new technologies. Actually technology helps people advance their lives, rather than deteriorates their thinking abilities.Technology helps us in a maltitude of ordinary tasks, so we get much more free time to do more complicated and advanced things. In this way, the world will continue developing.Techonology advantageous and desadvantegeous highly depend on how someone uses it. Someone might harm his thinking ability using calculators needlessly; another can avdvance his knowledge and descover new mathematical information using the same method, calculators.People's life would be so hard without those technological inventions. There is no doubt that older generations had some skills today's generations don't have, and the reason is there become more machines do many things instead of us. However, today's generations have also developed new skills older generations couldn't develop, simply because they didn't have time for it.To sum up, Technology's advantegeous on human's thinking abilities are much more than its desadvantegeous. The degree of the usefulness of techonology depend onhow we use it. As a result, people should use technolgy in a good manner, so that they get its benefits and put a side its harms."Some Criteria for Evaluation:"Clear & insightful position; position development with compelling reasons; Focused & Organized; Vocabulary fluency & sentence variety; Might have minor language error"Any advice for improving my writing skills will be highly appreciated... you can give me a score from 1 to 6... you can leave any comment
  6. I want to conduct research on the psychological effects new technologies like smartphones and social media has on our creativity, education, social interactions, etc. Is there a program in which I can study the effects of new technology, since the psychological research on this topic seems so scant.
  7. Hey guys! I am considering applying for a masters degree in science, technology, and society for spring 2017, and would really like to hear from others considering this. I have zero background in sociology, science, or math. I did my undergrad in mass media, and a post-grad diploma in new media journalism, and have been working at a large news wire for the past five years as a reporter covering pharmaceuticals and healthcare. Last I studied science was in high school, (and I was great at biology) but couldn't pursue it further, and have always wanted to learn more about science and tech. STS modules sound very exciting! But given my background, there are very few schools I can consider. I'm also wondering how to think of a research topic. Any ideas at all? Fellow applicants, what are your topics, and how did you think of them? Any advice at all would be really helpful! I definitely want to study this next year, and application season is already underway, so I need to act fast. Thanks!
  8. Hi everyone, I am a Vietnamese immigrant and I finished Law school with a Bachelor degree. I am intending to switch my career to either Finance or IT and thinking of either starting-over or going -up for Master. I have asked many people for their views as followings: 1. My degree: A. Starting-over: going to NOVA then George Mason because this option is the safest that I can completely comprehend the education principles, cultures, environments and, for the most important part (according to them), that I can be eligible for the Pells and Grants; B. Going-up: getting a technical certificate of my my desired major at a vocational public school (Adults and Community Education center Fairfax County) then applying for a job, working there for months then admitting to a private school with my evaluated undergraduate transcript; C. Going-up: going to NOVA for an Associate degree or, at least, a career certificate, then applying for a job, working there for months then admitting to a private school with my evaluated undergraduate transcript. My uncle suggests me (B) because he used to do it successfully with a Master degree in IT at Strayer University. However I cannot find any institute offering financial aid so I am in favor with (C) - it is, to me, a safer-but-still-quick option. 2. My major: I am in favor with Finance instead of IT or Computer because I can figure out what I gonna study and do with Finance, while IT is so wide... If I have to go with, Cyber Security may be my choice. The thing is I only have chances to meet people from Strayer with degrees in IT or Computer, while the reviews in forum give me various of both good and bad views on its accounting and finance programs. Thus, i wish to receive your kindly views on the followings: A. Which one is easier to study? It may be focused on math, logic or critical thinking; B. Which one requires more certificates? C. Which one has a smoother career route? D. Which one can support you to get a good pay job after graduate, or, increase the pay more quickly? Please feel open to share and comment because I am begging for your views and, if I am blessed, your pieces of advice. I do appreciate your attention. God bless you all!
  9. All the other interdisciplinary fields seem pretty well represented here, so I figured I'd chime in on behalf of this season's STS applicants. Where are you applying? What is your proposal? Are you applying to strictly interdisciplinary programs or have you thrown in a more conventional program? I'm going mostly interdisciplinary, but have also applied to Columbia's MPH in Sociomedical Sciences. Can't hurt! I have my eye on MIT's HASTS program in the future, but am looking for a terminal MA beforehand to beef up my qualifications. Since graduating, I have been working in PR and haven't had a chance to do much academic work. My research area is identity/selfhood in relation to new techniques in biotechnology and the "posthuman." I plan on grounding my critical and theoretical work in an ethnographic survey of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans with state-of-the-art prosthetic limbs. OK! Your turn.
  10. Hi all, I am a master's student working on a project to introduce/increase the sharing of digital tools within my department. I am looking for input from other students/faculty/anyone on how they research and manage their workflow. If you have anything in particular that you use and like, I'd love to know about it. It could be anything to: -filter news and information from wide world of the internet -amass information (esp. if you do any internet research) -organize information -analyze data -compile/write/edit -present information/data/research -collaborate with others For example, I filter news and current evens through Paper.li, and I am looking at NetVision as another possible option. I bookmark sites and articles with Del.i.cious, and Diigo is another great tool for annotating web pages and bookmarking. Del.li.cious feeds my bookmarks into DEVONThink, which is my main amassing/organizing tool. I also use Mendeley for PDFs. LiveScribe for recording interviews, ExpressScribe for transcribing them. I'll soon be assessing Dedoose for analyzing data, but am open to suggestings. OmniFocus for task managing (to-do lists, basically), although I'd love to know a free option (other than paper and pen). Scrivener for writing. Prezi for presenting. What do you use? Why? Do you follow twitter or blogs, and do they contribute to your academic work? I am eager and open to all suggestions!
