在写UCSD的SOP的时候根据他的要求要说明这个是否读PhD,如果我申请master但是SOP里又说读完之后希望读PhD会不会很奇怪呀,他们会不会认为你干嘛不直接申PhD呢,还有很纳闷就是写这个future goals的时候是否要直接说明这个以后是要直接工作呢?我看好多模板也没有写这些内容下面网址就是这个SOP的要求,感觉还挺多的

Five primary topics to cover in your statement of purpose:
  • How did you become interested in this field? Establish that you have had a long-term interest in the field and that you have taken positive steps in pursuing your interest. Give the committee members a sense of your particular talents and abilities and their relevance to your academic interests.
  • What experiences have contributed toward your preparation for further study in this field? Demonstrate your interest by providing examples of research experiences, internships, work experience, community service, publications, or life experiences. Briefly describe what you did in each experience. Also, make sure to articulate what you have learned about the field and how those lessons stimulated you to pursue an advanced degree.
  • What are your future goals? Specifically state your degree objective (Master's or Ph.D.) and specify what subdisciplines you are interested in pursuing. For example, if you are applying in political science, the committee needs to know whether you are pursuing American Politics, Comparative Politics, International Relations, or Political Theory. Let the reader know that you are planning a future career as a university professor, researcher, or consultant, or in public service or private practice (or whatever your goal happens to be).
  • What are your research interests? Within your subdiscipline, you should be able to identify one or two topics that are of interest to you. When possible, be specific about your research agenda. Remember that you will be working with professors in research; therefore, your research interests should parallel those of the faculty. (You will usually not be expected to know exactly what you want to research; faculty know that initial interests often change.)
  • How are you a "match" for the program to which you are applying? Explain what attracts you most to the institution/program to which you are applying. Align your research interests with those of one or more of the affiliated professors. The better the "match" with the program/professors, the better the chance that you will be admitted.

1. 申请master对之后继续申请phd其实是个加分项。而且,各学校招收phd的时候也希望看到申请人拥有master级别的教育背景,特别是master with thesis or publications。所以在PS中写之后打算继续读phd没有什么奇怪的,你是在告诉committee你想在申请phd之前尽可能做到fully prepared。

2. 如果你打算毕业直接找工作,其实并不影响你在PS里写之后希望继续读phd。而且,学校也希望你能在学习期间为学校带来“潜在的”科研成果(打算继续读phd的人很可能愿意去写thesis)。我个人其实并不建议写直接找工作,这样写好像并不能看出你能为学校带来什么(有误请指正)。

3. 其实有一点我想说,你现在的首要目标应该是想尽办法让学校录取你。不管你今后打算干什么,只有先进到学校里,你才有机会说别的。

4. 我之前申请过两次master,都写了我之后要读该专业的phd(话说我现在连专业都换了……),最后都收到了录取。当然,我没申请过UCSD这个档次的学校…… 那是下个阶段的事情了。

我觉得这个随意。有的同学是觉得不确定PhD的兴趣,所以先MS。

我也觉得先考虑让学校下录取,是不是要说念phd如果是对申请有帮助就写,没帮助就不写,毕竟sop或ps的字数有限制
