How do you even write a Master’s application for something you’ve never studied before?
Like what… I mean. I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT I AM DOING >_<!
they’re going to think I’m stupid and they’ll reject me and I’ll just curl up and despair in silence.
I didn’t have ANY undergrad experience with Linguistics before I applied to go to grad school for Linguistics in another country, and apply for visas, etc. I had to convert test scores into British academic numbers, not to mention adjust the different style of homework and assessment. It felt a little terrible to feel behind all year, and to initially not know all the historical figures and theories everyone else knew, but I’m glad I did it. I’m sure if you care about the field of study, you’ll make it work, and the people who read your applications will be able to tell that you care. Enthusiasm leads to knowledge.
You just gotta apply and see what happens.
