modernityisdead Posted June 13, 2010 Share Posted June 13, 2010 hi everyone! my bachelor's degree was in political science and my honors thesis was about how a gender-based social movement emerges and develops in a southeast asian country. as of the moment, i'm now doing a master's degree in southeast asian studies and my thesis revolves around the way collective identity is strategically used by gender-based social movements (particularly gay and lesbian social movements) in the region. moreover, although i took a lot of political science classes, including one quantitative, one qualitative, and advanced metholodogy in my undergrad, I really didn't have any specific area specialization (as my university offers a broader picture of the course). that's why i'm afraid that the admission committee might not see me as a potential candidate. so should i still pursue a phd in political science, or should i just shift to sociology, which has social movements as one of its core sub-fields? i'd highly appreciate your thoughts about this, especially that i'll be sending my application this december. many thanks!
