Statements of Excellence in Asian Studies

Over the last 30 years, I have paid especially close attention to relations between Taiwan and China, and all of the implications of this tension for Taiwanese identity. As a published historian of the Cold War, I have also paid particular close attention to the ever-simmering conflict on the Korean Peninsula. I am also very much attached to the profound spirituality to be found in Japan, especially at Shofukuji, where I spent as much time as possible at this holy site where Zen Buddhism began developing in Japan almost 8 centuries ago. I am confident that my raised consciousness level concerning Asian issues will enable me to provide creative ideas for our statement that can help you to get accepted, even to highly competitive programs in Asian Studies.

It is a special honor for me to help you; together, we are building tomorrow by helping you to get accepted, based on an eloquent explanation of your long term plans concerning your contribution to Asia and Asian-Western relations. After you fill out my Online Interview Form, I will ask you some specific questions by email if I need any further information. Please also send your resume/CV and or rough draft if you have one. 

Many scholarships available for the Asian American. These scholarships have been set up in an attempt to help these students get the funding they need. They are also offered through many of the Asian American organizations around the US that further political ambitions as well as education.

Master's Asian Studies, Sample Statement of Purpose, Chinese Applicant

XXXX University is my first choice for graduate school towards the MA Degree in Asian Studies for a variety of reasons, most importantly the fact that there are several faculty members at XXXXy whose research dovetails nicely with my own research aspirations for the future. The Bay Area is also where I want to be because I am an activist for the LGBT community. I am committed to studying the cause of modernization in my country, China, particularly with respect to issues of gender and sexual orientation. I feel strongly that my undergraduate studies have prepared me for excellence as a graduate student in Asian Studies at XXXX.

I want to promote greater social equality in China in particular – and Asia more generally speaking - for a host of discriminated and marginalized groups, rural-urban immigrants, sex workers, gay people, “left-over women” (women who are still unmarried after the age of 28), etc. Closely observing recent processes of legalization of same-sex marriage in Taiwan as well as Germany has me enthused with respect to our hopes for mainland China. Gay people in China suffer from different degrees of social discrimination at the hands of both the State and private individuals and groups. For many of those who choose to embrace their identities, family issues, mental illness, workplace discrimination and harassment etc., continue to plague them, which may lead to distorted lives for them and their surroundings.

As a result of pressure to continue the family line, for example, many gay men lie to straight women about their sexual orientation in the hope that their proposals of marriage will be accepted and an heir produced to appease their parents. The result is traumatic for everyone involved, the gay man at the center, the woman duped into a false marriage, their respective families, and any children that might result from such a marriage, all locked in a cruel charade.

There is a lot of work to be done in China before the validity of same-sex marriage is recognized. Yet, I look forward to consistent, yet gradual, increases in human liberty and the recognition of human rights in this regard. At the current stage, the Chinese State is not the key issue for most LGBT groups in China. Rather, these groups tend to focus more on the area of public opinion, addressing what is seen as a lack of understanding and communication, between the minority and the majority. China has a lot of “coming out” to do, not just gay people coming out to their parents, but also parents coming out to the public through their public acceptance of their gay children.

I look forward to an in-depth analysis of the many ways in which Chinese people are becoming more flexible with respect to gender issues. Thus, it would be a special honor for me to study under Professor XXXX whose primary research focuses on the role of transnational capital in the transformation of (East) Asian societies. I also profoundly admire the work of Professor XXXX that deals with the centrality of social identity, especially relevant for China. I find his reflections on the fluidity of the “social self” to be especially inspiring. I seek a full immersion as well in social media, the Internet, and the role of state censorship in China. Thus, studying under Professor Xiao Qiang would be another dream made reality at Berkeley, learning everything that I can, in particular, about the role of Chinese public opinion. Naturally, I hope to focus my research in this area on online LGBTQ communities in China and obstacles they may face due the state censorship and control of the internet. Finally, the work of Professor Judith Butler in Comparative Literature could round out the interdisciplinary flavor of my education at Berkeley, putting her concept of ‘gender performativity’ to the test in the Chinese arena. I want to dedicate myself to researching social issues in China, organizing like-minded people for progressive issues in a human-centric manner, so as to maximize our spiritual and moral as well as material lives.

Despite a timeless prohibition in China of homosexual relations and the fact that the Communist State has always heavily promoted heteronormativity, homosexuality has never stops thriving in various ways, always there as an undercurrent beneath the surface and most often in the closet. This itself breeds social disfunction, perpetuates unhealthy stereotypes, and does nothing for social progress towards a more harmonious society, supposedly, the central goal in China.

The strict one-child policy from the Maoist era is no longer with us. Now China allows families to have two children if one of the parents is an only child. This new two-child policy is designed to address the issue of aging in China. Among a host of issues in which I look forward to engaging is the lingering, widespread presence of female infanticide due the traditional preference – and aggravated by the one-child policy – of Chinese people for having a son instead of a daughter, particularly when they are allowed only one child. Family, sex, traditional values, and national policy are all entangled together in complex webs of social injustice and disfunction with repression breeding social and moral decay. Myself and my colleagues in the Chinese LGBT community have great hope that more liberal policies will take hold regarding sexuality in China, not so much because this is what justice requires, but because it is good for business and the economy.

My clients, increasingly, are Asian or Asian Americans because Asians are now attending colleges and universities at record numbers. Especially in the last few years there are more Asian Americans seeking a higher level education. Overall in the US 45 percent of all Asian Americans have been seeking a college level education in order to get ahead in their lives. Most of the population for Asians above the age of 25 has a degree from a university. These degrees surprisingly have been obtained through the Asian homeland rather than in the US. In this article we will look at the Asian American education opportunities that individuals can find in the US. These have changed drastically in the last few years, regarding Asian American education.

As someone who has traveled throughout much of Asia and has spent decades closely following political, economic, and cultural developments in that region of the world, I feel strongly that I am especially well qualified to help with statements in this area.

Asian Studies, Issues, Concerns, and Creative Writing for the Personal Statement of Purpose in Asian Studies for Admission to Master’s Degree, MA Programs.

Prior to developing this service about 20 years ago, I lived in Korea and Japan for extensive periods of time teaching English. Later, while attending my own Master’s Program in TESOL at the University of Illinois in Champaign/Ubana, I developed especially close friendships with Asians that continue to this day. I learned an enormous amount about Asia. In addition to my independent reading, I have learned a lot about Asia, especially South East Asia.

Sample 1st Paragraph MSc East Asian Studies, Korean Applicant

Born in Seoul Korea, I share in common with President Obama the fact that I spent formative childhood years in Indonesia, 3-8 years old. I remember Indonesia very well and this has contributed to my sense of global or international identity as a citizen of the world. I am also fully Korean, however, as a result of the fact that we returned to Korea where I continued to grow up from 9 to 15 years old, when me moved to Canada.

Now 23, I have spent the last 5 years in the USA and will be completing my BA in Political Science next spring. I have come to very much love full time study and I hope to continue on to graduate school at the University of Bristol because I am anxious to move forward on the graduate level right away. Your MSc in East Asian Development and Global Economy at the University of XXXX is the graduate program that covers all of my areas of major interest in the most comprehensive and creative way.
