미국 대학원 지원시 작성하였던 학업계획서입니다. 이 학업계획서로 인해서 Fulbright장학금과 아이비리그에 합격하는 데 큰 일조를 한 거 같습니다.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
My interest in language dates back to middle school, when I became interested in English. I later discovered an affinity for French. As an undergraduate I majored in French and English. Even though I enjoyed my undergraduate courses, they did not go into enough depth. For instance, when I learned a vowel chart, I was very curious about how each vowel was arranged. As a result, I desired more intensive study and decided to earn a graduate degree.
Finally, upon receiving my Ph.D., my plan is to return to Korea and to teach at a research university. Then, I would like to make a contribution to Korean linguistics by continuing my research on experimental phonetics. Moreover, I will dedicate myself to giving my students the best preparation for their careers as linguists.
