Date: Thu, 28 Sep 1995 02:31:24 EDT From: Kev Subject: Masters programs and beyond Hey there again! Since I've quit slothing around, I'll ask a question I've been meaning to ask for a while here... Most of y'all have at least a masters, some probably in Linguistics. Three questions... 1) I have to convince my father that Grad School is worth it... I am really interested in Linguistics, which would be my choice for a masters, and perhaps a doctorate degree. However, my father, the ultimate pragmatist, wants to know what the hell I'd do with the degree... aside from teach. I said research, but I really couldn't give him a good answer... Anyone have any ideas? 2) Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I should go? Is there any place that's inherently (sp?) better that everywhere else? 3) I lied... The truth value of the above statement is false since I only had two questions, I guess! -- Thanks for reading! KVK III (a Moreheadlian... just like Terry!
