关于Film&Media专业留学生想知道什么?

        去年此刻,刚刚选完Film&Media major的小编分享了一篇大一课程学习的心得。一年过去,Film&Media departement在2019年正式成立了Screen Cultures and Curatorial Studies的MA和PhD学位项目。这篇文章分享的是Film&Media(因为课程代码是film,以下皆简称为film)第二年体验的update,希望对想要选择Film专业的同学们有些帮助。下面就跟Meeloun小编一起来看看吧!

lazy loading - 关于Film&Media专业留学生想知道什么?

        01.Why Film&Media?

        Film&Media是一门有趣的学科。Film学习的不仅仅是电影和影视行业本身,也包括社会艺术文化背景、图像及媒体运用和影响等有深度和广度的内容。Film的200及以上level课程主要分为production和theory两种类型,production的课程在学期末通常需要以个人或小组形式完成project,theory的课程则是以写essay为主。

        除必修课film250在秋季学期有期末考试以外,Film的其他课程基本没有final exam。常见的评分考核项目通常包括attendance+participation课堂参与、essay论文(通常一门课会有两到三篇,字数不等;production的课程会要写proposal/treatment)、peer review同行评审(常见于production课程)、film project电影制作、quiz测试、presentation演讲等。所以尽管没有期末考试,final week还是要在赶无穷无尽的due中掉发度过。

        另外,江湖上传言film没有早八和周五的课是假的,只是早八和周五安排的课程较少。但江湖上另有传言film的楼Isabel很美是真的。

        02.Film&Media requirements

        想要在大二成功申请进入film专业,需在大一上Film110这门课并且取得B+及以上的成绩,另外总GPA要求2.8及以上。

        03.Film&Media courses

        Film110:大一全年必修课。入门课程,上半学期作业以essay为主,下半学期需要以小组形式完成一个digital story的project,也就是拍一个五分钟左右的电影。每周一晚上6:30-9:30的lecture,会先介绍主题再放电影。一学年共有四个教授,全年每周都有quiz,难度根据教授不同有变化(认真看reading+记lecture!)。

        Film250:大二全年必修课(2019年5月后入学的同学增加了两节200level的必修课程)。以电影制作教学为主,有lecture和lab,上半学期重点是培养基本的制作能力,比如使用摄像机/lighting/使用final cut pro/制作sound等等,同时不定期投放小组和个人作业(今年小组作业要求是拍摄短片需包含若干种镜头如tracking/panning/handheld/zoom等,同时考量technical quality/aesthetics/editing等;个人作业是需要只用closeup和extreme closeup完成拍摄)。下半学期的重点是完成winter project,在给的不同theme中选一个和lab的同学自由组队、分配角色任务完成作业。

        04.How is Film&Media?

        Film并不像“不就是拍电影看电影嘛”那么简单,所谓好玩的production每学期可以上的课程数是有限制的,其他课程还是有很多reading并常常需要你长期积累然后挖空自己的脑袋写essay或是script。就算是production,谁没有在editing room一呆就是七八个小时剪片到要瞎的体验呢。所以,Film不是一个轻松的学科,但如果你有兴趣、有灵感、有想法,它绝不会让你失望。

        Film的评分是比较主观的,尤其是production的课程。如果想拿好成绩最好多听听Prof、TA还有你的大神同学们的意见。但Film并不是一个压分的院系,和arts的其他专业在grade distribution上相差不大,有个别课程得A及以上的比例甚至更高一些。

        就个人体验而言,Film学生和老师之间的关系很融洽,很多prof都有现场拍摄的经验,也非常乐意分享给同学。不少同学的project里也会出现各种prof(还有Cam!)客串,总之是很温馨的一个department。

        最后,如果对film有兴趣但不想作为major学习,也可以考虑minor或者media certificate,或者只是选修film110体验一下拍电影的乐趣也是一个不错的选择喔!

Research Proposal代写中常见的扣分原因分析

        很多留学生在写research proposal的时候觉得很痛苦,不知道怎么去写才好。并且感觉写的不错,莫名其妙的就被各种扣分。今天Meeloun小编就分享一些research proposal代写过程中常见的扣分原因,同学们可以对症下药!

        1.很少写proposal的学生,压根儿不明白这是啥东西,大部分情况是拿到一些sample来进行生搬硬套,结果引来导师的一大波吐槽,因为写出来的不符合research topic设定。初期只有找专业的代写才能解决所有问题。

        2.经常碰到学生说,不会用和不想用定量数据分析的方法可不可以,就通过refer to existing literature来分析,虽然literary research也是一种研究方法,但是它很容易被学生用错成对references的简单描述,总结和归纳。

        3.痛苦的一大根源是不了解research philosophy,research approach,research instrument等这些概念的内涵,就算理解了,不知道如果在自己的研究中进行实际作用,建议平时都多读点相关文献,以及它们实际应用到的dissertation.

        4.research proposal设计不合理,有个是因为没有去解剖topic,根本不明白目前自变量是什么,因变量又是什么,以及自己要test的是什么,不搞清楚这些,结果可能就是写出来一团浆糊。

        5.research proposal paper写作和平时要求写的paper最大的不同在于,前者是根据目前所有的资源来设计一个研究方案,方案涉及很多细节,每一步怎么做,每一个难题怎么解决,以保证研究顺利进行。而essay/paper就是直接开写,拿到topic就开始看文献,构思,动笔,是直接进行分析,不是设计和计划。

        以上就是Meeloun小编给同学们分享的关于research proposal被扣分的几种情况,希望上面包含了同学们常犯的错误并且能够帮助同学们解决相关的问题。需要research proposal代写的同学可以扫描右边的二维码联系我们的客服哦!

Common App中的Personal Essay怎么写

        你知道通用申请吗?

        通用申请(Common Application),简称Common App,一个用于申请美国517所高等院校(包括47个州和华盛顿特区)、奥地利、法国、德国、意大利、瑞士、英国等海外国家以及中国大陆部分中外合作高校的应用网站。

        除了客观的分数和学校排名因素以外,它还有其他主观因素被纳入考量,例如文书(personal essay),推荐信(recommendation),课外活动(extracurriculiar activities),等等。其中personal essay是至关重要的一环。

        本期Meeloun便与大家分享七个essay prompts中的第一个

        Option#1

        Some students have a background,identity,interest,or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it.

        “Identity”是本题的关键字。

        无论是背景也好,兴趣爱好也罢,都是让你之所以是“你”的理由。所以,选择了这个话题,你可以通过一个或者是一系列的事件来阐述你的uniqueness。而事件的选择,应把重点放在解释“meaningful”上。

        Sample Essay

        Wallflower

        I wasn’t unfamiliar with the word.It was something I remembered hearing since I was able to grasp the fine art of polysyllabic language.Of course,in my experience,it had always been subtly laced with negativity.They told me that it wasn’t something I was supposed to be.They told me to socialize more—okay,maybe they had a point there—but to open up to strangers I didn’t know from Adam?Apparently,yes,that was exactly what I was to do.I had to’put myself out there,’or something.They told me I couldn’t be a wallflower.Wallflower was unnatural.Wallflower was wrong.So my impressionable younger self tried her best not to see the inherent beauty in the word.I wasn’t supposed to see it;no one else did.I was terrified to recognize its rightness.And that was where Charlie came in.

        The Writing:从复杂短语“the fine art of polysyllabic language“到“I understood him.I was him.He was me”三个主谓宾的简单串联,可以一窥作者对英语的掌控力。

        Before I get any further,I feel obligated to mention that Charlie is not real.I question whether that makes a difference—it shouldn’t,really.Fictional,factual,or seven-dimensional,his influence in my life is indisputable.But,to give credit where credit is overwhelmingly due,he comes from the brilliant mind of Stephen Chbosky,from the universe of his novel,The Perks of Being a Wallflower.In a series of anonymous letters to an unknown friend,Charlie tells his story of life,love,and high school:of skirting the fringes of life and of learning to make the leap.And from the first sentences,I was drawn to Charlie.I understood him.I was him.He was me.I felt acutely his fears of entering high school,his just-barely-perceptible separation from the rest of the student body,because these fears were mine as well

        The Tone:虽然作者自称“壁花少女”,但通读全文,明显感到这篇文章出自一个正能量的“元气少女”。文章主题严肃,但字体行间却透着诙谐与幽默,作者完美地平衡了戏谑与说理。若要说不足,便是语言有时过于抽象。比如,“beauty”一词多次出现,但并没有被清楚地定义。

        What I didn’t have,the singular distinction between this character and myself,was his vision.Even from the very beginning,Charlie’s innocence and naivetégave him an unparalleled ability to see beauty in everything and to acknowledge it without hesitation exactly as I’d longed to allow myself to do.I had been scared to be the only one to value being a wallflower.But with Charlie came the promise that I wasn’t alone.

        When I saw that he could see what I wanted to see,I suddenly found that I could see it,too.He showed me that the true beauty in being a wallflower was the ability to acknowledge freely that beauty,to embrace it for everything it was while still managing to’put myself out there’on a level I hadn’t thought myself capable.Charlie taught me not conformity,but the honest,open expression of myself,free from the vise-like fear of being judged by my peers.He told me that sometimes,they were wrong.Sometimes,it was okay to be a wallflower.Wallflower was beautiful.Wallflower was right.

        And for that,Charlie,I am forever in your debt.

        The Topic:光是瞄一眼题目就足以让读者对文章期待满满。老实说,选择一个不走寻常路的题目是冒险且需要勇气的,尤其是在众多申请者绞尽脑汁编出一些“丰碑性”的事件的大背景下,本文的题目及立意尤为讨喜。

Essay写作如何巧拿高分?

        很多留学生在essay写作中得分都有点不尽人意,明明自己已经很努力的完成作业了,各种查资料、想论点、做proofreading,换来的结果可能只是在fail的边缘。那么同学们要怎么才能有效提分呢?下面Meeloun小编就给同学们分享一些essay写作技巧

lazy loading - Essay写作如何巧拿高分?

essay写作技巧分享

        Format 格式问题

        关于格式就要牵扯出如何正确地写好citation、reference list

        这些在你们的workbook上都有详细的格式标准和要求,千万不要自己想当然……(小编去年就因为天真地把in text citation的句点位置搞错,导致格式就全错了,虽然最后大一上的EAP还没那么严格没有扣分……但到了下学期的report中,这些格式问题也是有5分的,所以一定要多加注意。正确的格式应该是:“……(Richard,2013).”省略号的内容即为你paraphrase的部分。

        除了workbook,还有两项指导来源:一是来自lecture上的PPT,二是来自ice上的Harvard Referencing System的PDF文件(个人觉得最后一个是最权威并且最详细的)reference list相对复杂一点,不同体裁的source所用格式也不一样,像book的source就比较复杂,涉及出版地点、具体页数等信息。

        最后不要忘了reference list要按照第一个词的字母顺序进行排序。

        Academic 学术问题

        这里不仅仅指的是语法要过关,更重要的是你在文章中所用的单词、短语等都要达到“academic”的标准(比如学术写作中,用第一人称we或者I来叙述句子是不合适的,还有像good,people,something这些概念模糊的词语也是不适宜出现在文章里的)

        关于Academic的问题,这是大学论文的一个特点,和高中惯用的套路是不同的。(举例来说,像“with the development of technology”“practice makes perfect”这些在高中看似能给自己的作文“加分”的短语,在学术写作中是减分项,并且是很忌讳的)

        因此学弟学妹们首先最好调整心态,正视这种写作模式,就不会出现觉得tutor讲得云里雾里,自己也搞不懂论文的中心点在哪里的情况了。

        Logistic 逻辑问题

        个人认为这一点是评判一篇essay能否上70的最重要的一个因素,尤其是学术写作,是非常注重逻辑和思维的连贯性的。

        比如在写cause and effect essay的时候,首先要明确描述的对象,就以“压力对学生的影响”为例,压力和学生自然就是分析的对象。这里涉及到的一个逻辑就是,先要论述压力是如何产生的(cause),其次才能进一步讨论它的积极/消极影响(effect)以及,这种影响理应是多方面的,生理,心理等,这些都可以作为切入点进行写作。

        至于ABC班的上学期essay,主要是关于problem和solution的,source的资料一般tutor会统一提供,不用自己再去寻找,并且字数也会少一些,大概600-800的样子。但是关于上述的三大难点,也还是同样适用的!

        所以也不能掉以轻心。而到了下学期,会接触到comparison essay,工管的宝宝们通常会写两个公司的比较,通过自己找source,分析公司的所作所为,从而判断哪个公司在某方面(譬如保护环境)做得更好。

        关于词汇选用与搭配

        很多新生可能很疑惑,刚开始接触到academic essay,根本不知道哪些词academic哪些词不academic。在此,小编向大家说明一下,16届workbook最后几页是有一个word list的,并且在这一堆单词的后面有1-9这样的数字。去年第一节EAP课时tutor就会告诉大家,这些数字代表着academic的程度,譬如如果一个词标“1”,那么它应该是在academic essay中经常出现的,以此类推。

高分essay代写范文:尼日利亚的教育问题

        下面Meeloun小编为大家整理一篇优秀的essay代写范文- Improvement in Education Is Needed for Nigeria’s Development,供大家参考学习,这篇论文讨论了尼日利亚的教育问题。目前,尼日利亚面临的许多挑战中,促进其国家发展最重要的是改进教育制度,因为教育是决定未来一代如何生活的根本因素。而尼日利亚的教育问题根源在于其入学率非常低,广泛的贫困、政治不稳定、庞大的童工市场、文化原因以及严重的性别歧视等原因是导致其问题的关键。

高分essay代写范文

        Introduction 介绍

        1960年独立后,尼日利亚一直在政治动荡和经济问题中挣扎。尼日利亚政府必须面对许多历史和新问题,例如石油经济的改革、处理种族和宗教紧张局势以及发展民主(CIA)。然而,从人民的角度来看,在尼日利亚目前面临的诸多挑战中,促进国家发展最重要的是完善教育体系,因为教育是年轻人/未来一代人的根本决定因素。总的来说,当一个国家年纪较大时,就会在社会中发挥作用,因此,这是一个国家能够为其未来做出的最直接的投资,在社会的所有领域都会产生严重的后果。

        After it independence in 1960, Nigeria has been struggling in political turbulence and economic problems. There are many historical and new issues that the Nigerian government has to face, such as the reforming of the petroleum-based economy, dealing with the ethnic and religious tensions, and developing democracy (CIA). However, from the people’s perspective, among the many challenges Nigeria is currently facing, the most important to furthering its national development is to improve the education system, since education is the fundamental determinant of how the young/future generation. In general, will perform in society when they are older, and therefore is the most direct investment that a country can make for its future, with serious consequences in all realms of society.

        Low School Enrollment in Nigeria

        The most fundamental issue facing the Nigerian education system is the low enrollment rate of children in primary schools. In Nigeria, 40% of children aged six to eleven do not attend primary school, and this proportion can be considerably higher in the impoverished inland north. 30% of students have not completed their primary school education, and only 54% of them successfully matriculate into the country’s middle schools (Unicef). This low rate of education among the youth dramatically reduces the job options for the younger generation, resulting in low utilization rate of human capital and limiting the overall development of Nigeria.

        A major concern is the gender gap. Compared to the boys, Nigerian girls are less likely to attend school. The causes are complex but roughly include four aspects: cultural barriers, family financial difficulties, child labor market, and early marriage. Cultural and religious norms have limited the role of women in Nigeria. Most parents of girls are more willing to only send their children to Qur’anic schools (Unicef). Even for those who managed to enroll in secular schools, 30% of them might drop out. Early marriage is another issue that keeps the girls from being educated, and poverty is another reason. The cost of education is a heavy burden for some poor families because they cannot afford the tuition, books, materials, transportation, and other costs of educating their child, and the state provides very limited assistance. The cost of indirect education for girls is also seen as higher than boys, and this is also linked to the issue of child labor. In Nigeria, child labor is a necessary income stream for poor households (Unicef). Girls working as child laborers not only save on the cost of direct education, they could also help with housework, take care of siblings, and also provide cheap, productive labor and make additional income for the family. Early marriage is also more of a problem for girls than boys. Once the girls get married, they inevitably have children, and the chance for them to continue their education drops to a much lower level than before.

        The low education level of the country’s women deeply affects Nigeria’s national prosperity. As these women become poorly educated laborers for life, they can only pursue entry-level jobs. What is worse, the fertility rate remains high in poor households, continuing the low-income developmental trap (Sachs, 2005). Having six or seven children leaves the women no choice but to play the role of homemaker and exclusively focus on parenting, plus her lack of education makes her less competitive in the job market. Education will bring many social achievements and economic benefits, but the lack of female education in Nigeria deprived them of the opportunity to participate in the future economic development of the country. This situation forms a negative cycle for the women of Nigeria and it is leaving half the population with an inability to contribute to the development of the country or of themselves.

        Balancing Increased Enrollment With Quality Improvements

        Not only should we be concerned about whether the children, and how many of them, are attending school in Nigeria, but we should also pay attention to the quality of education in the country, which, also sorely needs to be improved. The government has launched policies to improve the education quality of Nigeria, such as the Universal Basic Education Scheme in 1999, and has emphasized the improvement of teaching quality, assessment, and teacher training as the priorities (Majo, 2000). However, as current statistics show, improvements have been quite limited. The general direction of development seems to be correct (Sen, 1988), but the biggest challenge facing education is still financial support and funding.

        First of all, the number of schools in Nigeria, as well as the number of facilities and employees/teachers of these institutions, is not proportionally equivalent to the number of school age children. This makes it hard to improve the quality and efficiency of the education system. Statistics show that, on average, 600 of primary school students in Nigeria have to share a single toilet. Most schools in rural areas also lack water, electricity, and other basic resources. As for the number of schools, there were about 54,000 public primary schools in 2009 (Abuja). From a numeric perspective, this seems sufficient, but disparities in quality are extreme and highly unsatisfactory. Another problem is that the entire northern part of the country is experiencing a low-level civil war as the Boko Haram conducts its insurgency. This does not help to secure the budget to improve the education system. A lack of qualified teachers is another issue.

        The education system could be largely improved by securing an amount of funding that is decent enough to support the educational institutions. While many governments have policies for free and compulsory education, however, most developing countries are unable to maintain comprehensive free education, such as Nigeria. And non-free education will cause the problem of poor households being unable to afford the children education. As a recession economy, it is difficult for Nigeria to guarantee free education for the people. Moreover, experience around the world show that free education is only a slogan unless parents, people, or governments have economic capacity. Nigeria could therefore consider the establishment of a program that directly or indirectly raises funds for its national education system (Adeyemi, 2011). However, in the implementation of the program, it is necessary to pay attention to corruption. The gap between rich and poor in many poor countries is relatively large, and given the lack of government regulation, corruption continues to breed. It is important to pay attention to the future of the country through the education program.

        Child Labor Market’s Effect on Education System

        Another factor that decreases the number of children attending schools is that the Nigerian labor market soaks up a large number of school age children (of both genders) to work as they are not supposed to. In Nigeria, there are approximately 15 million children under 14 years old who have become laborers, doing unwanted jobs that could potentially harm their physical and mental health. Although Nigeria passed a Child’s Rights Law in 2003, not all 36 states had accepted it. The process of taking the law in each state is still ongoing; meanwhile, child labor is still very common in the north (Kure, 2013).

        This situation is difficult to be change, or at least to be seriously improved, and poverty is the most obvious reason for the short- term because the child laborers’ incomes have become necessary for their families. Without that portion of money, the chance of the children to get future education would be even lower because of poverty. Lack of education is also a primary cause of child labor in Nigeria. “Where between 60% – 70% of child labor is prevalent, do not posses adequate school facilities. Even when schools are sometimes available, they are too far away, difficult to reach, unaffordable, or the quality of education is so poor that parents wonder if going to school is really worth it.” (Nwazuoke & Igwe, 2016). Other reasons for non-attendance include such reasons as broken homes, and parental absence should also be taken into consideration.

        The consequences could be easily foretold. If the children continue to become laborers instead of learning knowledge in school, this poverty trap will be inescapable for the entire nation, since the future generation is not receiving enough education which can improve their society and lives in the future. In addition, child labor would also increase the risk of injuries, disabilities, and even death of workers. Also, due to lack of management, education, and boundaries, some children might become sex workers, street criminals or join political movements to reform society, which may also have additional effects in destabilizing the country. The increasing political participation might lead to violence (Huntington, 1971). All of the above pose risks to the future development of the entire country.

        Conclusion

        Nigeria has a strong capacity for potential development, with its massive resources and large population, but a number of extensive and long-term problems have thwarted its development and becoming a major power and strong civil society. Nigeria’s extensive poverty, political instability, large child labor markets, cultural reasons and high levels of sexism and gender inequality and other reasons have kept enrollment rates very low and are harming the future development prospects of the nation. Increasing this enrollment rate, and improving the quality of education that the students receive, is vital to securing Nigeria’s future and to securing the welfare of its citizens. Attempts have been made to focus on these issues and they are widely recognized, but little progress has been made in recent years. It will be necessary to secure a stable political and security environment as a basis for this, after which revenue streams will need to be developed that can eliminate the child labor market, increase student enrollment, and begin to channel funds towards improving school quality while cleaning up corruption and rolling back some of the sexism that has been harming the future of women and of the country as a whole.

Essay写作需要掌握这些搜索技巧

        很多留学生在完成essay写作时需要查阅各种资料,但是如果同学们没有趁手的搜索工具和正确的搜索技巧的话,就很难找到自己想要的资源。今天Meeloun小编就给同学们分享一些搜索工具和技巧,帮助同学们高效完成essay写作

lazy loading - Essay写作需要掌握这些搜索技巧

搜索工具及技巧

        一.选择数据库

        大家大学的图书馆和e-lib应该提供各种学术数据库。但并非所有的都与你要写的领域有关(例如,如果你是学医的,你可能不会需要美国气象学会的气象学和地球天体物理学的文摘数据库)。因此,你应该通过学校的e-lib搜索引擎选择与你的领域最相关的数据库来查阅资料。

        二.搜索条件

        接下来,你需要选择相关的搜索词。首要的搜索词肯定是你论文的核心词汇(例如,如果你写的关于古埃及木乃伊,你肯定会想搜索“mummification”和“Egypt”)。

        其次,你可能就需要头脑风暴相关的术语。这里有一个小tips,你可以参考一下与你主题相关的论文,看看这些论文的Abstract摘要里面使用了哪些关键词,你就可以也试着搜索一下啦。

        三. “Wildcards” 以及“Truncation”

        Wildcards是用来寻找相同术语的替代拼写符号。如果一个Wildcard的符号是”!”,那么你可以搜索“RAM!SES”找到它的各种变种单词,比如Ramses, Rameses, Ramesses

        Truncation允许你搜索相同术语的不同结尾。所以如果一个Truncation以“*”表示,那你可以搜索“Egypt*”,来找到与埃及相关的各种单词啦,比如 ”Egyptology” , “Egyptian“.

        四.使用Boolean Operators

        另一种定制搜索方法是使用Boolean Operators布尔运算符。你需要的三个主要术语是“AND”,“OR”,“NOT”。

        “AND”操作会让搜索同时包含多个关键词的文章(例如,“mummification AND Ancient Egypt”)。

        “OR”则是在两项关键词中查找出包含任意一项关键词的文章(例如,“mummification or burial rites”)。

        “NOT”让你排除一些搜索项。

        五.筛选

        你也可以使用数据库自带的搜索限制条件选项来使你的搜索范围降低。这些选项可以让你过滤部分你不想要的条件。

        常见的过滤器包括语言(例如,只搜索英文论文),出版日期(例如,只搜索2005以后发表的论文)。
