Question: on visions

3 comments - Post a comment

If you apply for Master's degree studies, do you know which subject you want to focus on during those two years before you commence the studies? I suppose you should have a rough idea which subjects interest you most, but how about that meticulous vision? On the other hand, can a vision be meticulous? Visions usually are vague, unless you're John the Apostle.

PS Two main reasons folks apply for Master's studies in Lithuania are: conscription (applies to guys) and the possession of paper with MA of x scribbled on it. How about Ireland?

I know quite a few who did masters not long after their degrees because they couldn't hack the real world. One guy, in particular, actually boasts about it. He's a prat though.

I went back to college part time to do my MA over 2 years... Why, I went back was because I didn't get to do my choice of original primary degree (because I fucked up my leaving) and so, I went back and did an M.A. in International Relations (Politics) in DCU...

Which was a fairly structured course, I'm not sure we have the pick and choose M.As available in Ireland that you seem to be describing!
