Ejemplo de statement of purpose

  1. 1. Ejemplo de “Statement of purpose”Sometida por un hombre puertorriqueño (Administración Pública)Politics has been my central fascination since adolescence. Now at 23, I find myselfbecoming even more mesmerized by political thinking, with a growing maturity andpragmatism that locates me within the area of discourse of Public Policy andAdministration. I have a progressive mentality and I am someone who likes to reflecton social change; and I dream of contributing to social change in meaningful ways ona structural level.As a black, Puerto Rican man, I am especially concerned with Latino and otherminority issues, as well as Latin American concerns, especially the way in whichLatinos generally face an uphill battle in the public sphere. Born and raised in SanJuan, I did my B.A. in Political Science with a minor in French and graduated magnacum laude from the University of XXXX. As a result of my current Master’s studiesat Central Michigan University, to be graduating in May of 2008 in PublicAdministration (GPA 3.88), I feel that I am a strong candidate for your program.My first choice for graduate study is the XXXX School of Public Policy because ofmy intense attraction to your new doctoral program that enables students to pursue ajoint Ph.D. with Public Policy and Political Science. I see your program as the perfectsolution to this pull between my idealistic and theoretical—purely intellectual—interests, on the one hand, and my pragmatic side, on the other, the part of me that ismost concerned with practical professional applications.By achieving a simultaneous doctoral degree in both Political Science and PublicPolicy, I have confidence that I will arrive at the type of integral scholar that I aspireto become, someone who would be able to make his fullest contribution to theadvancement of social science in pragmatic or applied directions built upon a solidtheoretical foundation. I am especially attracted to the way in which studies in yourinterdisciplinary program combine the policy focus of the Ford school with world-renowned departments in the Social Sciences.
