mastermind1886 Posted November 10, 2009 Share Posted November 10, 2009 Is anyone here applying to Minnesota's American Studies program (alternatively, has anyone applied there)? I have a nitpicky question about their required application statements... and, after emailing the department, I haven't gotten a response. Figured I'd ask here before I call tomorrow morning. The long and short of it: The prompt for Statement #1 on the graduate school application online (in the "Application Statements" section) is as follows: "Please provide a statement outlining your immediate educational and long-range career objectives in relation to your chosen field. If there is a particular faculty member with whom you wish to study, please give that person's name and explain why you want to study with that person. You may also wish to include other information, such as any undergraduate research experience, internships, or other experiences you may have had to document your preparation for advanced study in your chosen field." This seemed, to me, very similar to the directions for the Academic Statement listed under the American Studies supplemental information section on the department website: "Academic Statement: A typewritten statement (not to exceed three double-spaced pages) outlining your interests and professional goals and how you think American Studies at Minnesota will provide focus and instruction toward your goals." Are these meant to be two separate documents, or are they describing the same statement? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
