芝加哥大学, English

I am a PhD student in English Literature at a top American university, and have worked as a professional writer as well as a professor. My speciality is in all things Writing related! I have taught courses in Rhetoric and Composition, and am equally able to read application essays as well as high school and college level work.

本文整理自芝士圈外籍文书导师社群答疑

问:对于在文书中描述自己的硕士研究计划,Tim你有什么好的建议吗?比如我应该多注意结构或细节?

答:这个问题在后面的提问中也出现了。在你的PS中,你需要用1-2段的篇幅描述出你的研究计划,关于你感兴趣的科目,你将如何学习它们,在研究中你做出的假设或提出的疑问等等。

在相关的研究提案中,我建议你至少要用一页来描述你为何对此兴趣强烈以及你是如何探索追求这个研究的。

我非常建议同学们想象你明天就必须把论文或学位论文写好,然后用这种已经想象出来的论文来指导你自己的写作。

以下为英文版原文,以供参考。

Q:Do you have any advice for the research plan for a master?Like the structure or what detailes should I pay more attention to?


A:This is similar to a question about research proposals that appears later. In your Personal Statement, you should lay out in 1-2 paragraphs what your basic research plans are – what subjects you are interested in, how you will study them, the specific hypotheses or questions you have, etc. In a Research Proposal, you want to spend at least a page documenting a singular interest and how you will pursue it. I like to suggest that students imagine what they would write their thesis or dissertation on Tomorrow, if they had to, and to use that imagined research to guide their writing.
