    我现在录取到了哥大教育传播学专业(是Stem),也录取到了宾大Tesol专业。最近看到深圳那边中学待遇不错,有点想毕业去当老师,但是哥大这个项目又是Stem(虽然我感觉学得比较浅,甚至怀疑学Tesol也能做产品设计类的工作), 纽约机会也很多,感觉可以实习,所以难以选择。。。

    In consideration of the global economic trends, neither of the two programs is your optimal choice.

    First, you should eliminate your plan to work as a teacher in a middle school in Shenzhen. I have read the report, and I believe (although ‘politically incorrect’) that it is a significant intellectual waste to work there irrespective of the high salary offered.

    You should give up the TESOL program, which focuses on ESL teaching methodologies. The relevant skills are not what the global economies (US and China alike) really need.

    You may choose the Educational Communication program presented by Columbia if you have no better choice. This program provides the learning opportunities related to quantitative skills, media technologies, as well as media analysis, which are quite useful in this Big Data age.

    I still recommend you to choose a more technology-focused program.
