Study in the United States, Liberal Arts Major

 

Studying in the United States: Introduction to Liberal Arts Major Application and School Ranking

In recent years, with the needs of personal development, the proportion of liberal arts students in applying for American colleges and universities has increased. During the application process, education, media, public management and public policy, economics, law and other majors are all popular majors. Liberal arts students studying in the United States can now not only improve their own competitiveness, but can also be recognized in all aspects.

 

US Secondary College

American liberal arts graduate students are generally offered under secondary colleges such as liberal arts colleges, public administration colleges, media colleges, education colleges, law schools, and psychology colleges according to different majors. The length of master's courses is generally 1-2 years, and most schools The flexible credit system is adopted.

 Generally, 30-36 credits are required to complete degree-required courses, and some schools may require more than 40 credits. Tuition fees generally range from 30,000 to 60,000 US dollars. The doctoral program generally has a relatively long academic system. 

This is very different from that in China. In the United States, it takes at least 4 years from admission to obtaining a doctorate. Some people may take more than 7 years, and the tuition will generally be between 120,000 and 160,000 US dollars. 

 The long school system is destined to have relatively high learning and living costs, so it needs the support of scholarships.

 

Generally speaking, master application has the following requirements:

Language: Because liberal arts studies have always had high language requirements, and the differences in language and culture are involved, the language requirements for international students in American liberal arts applications are generally very high. 

Among them, the media majors of Columbia University and the University of Southern California are even for applicants List the TOEFL 114 high standard.

 At the same time, most American liberal arts schools are concentrated in the TOP50 colleges and universities, so the language requirements are raised in disguise. 

For applicants applying for American liberal arts, it is recommended to focus on the Verbal part of TOEFL and GRE, hoping to achieve at least a TOEFL score of 100 plus a GRE Verbal score of 155 or more.

Grade point: Generally, the average score of applicants is above 3.0. For relatively popular majors such as law and media, or majors such as international relations and political science, which are mostly American students, it is hoped that applicants' grade points can reach 3.5 or more.

Professional background: American liberal arts professional applications have different professional background requirements for applicants. Among them, media, education and other majors do not require high professional background.

Law, international relations, political science, etc. require students with relevant professional backgrounds to apply for majors.

Soft background

 The master's degree in American liberal arts is more practical. Therefore, soft background requirements generally focus on the accumulation of background internships, such as law firms that require legal majors, media companies that require media majors, etc.

 Applicants are advised to prepare as soon as possible. If they have two or more internship experiences, it will play a very important role in the application of liberal arts majors.
