  1. What kind of students are Dartmouth looking for?  I think you could see from yourself and your classmates. Are there any  peculiarities you guys all have?

  达特茅斯喜欢录取什么样的学生?

  Dartmouth is looking for students who dare to be different, students who  are not afraid to be quirky or a little strange. Dartmouth also wants students  who have a passion for learning and who want to contribute to society. At  Dartmouth, you can see students walking around campus in chicken costumes or  encounter blue-haired volunteers asking for donations to purify the water in  distant villages. When I was a student there, I was not afraid to walk around in  the most colorful and brightest pants I could find. Dartmouth is a bright and  vibrant community that wants to embrace bold uniqueness.

  达特茅斯学院喜爱那些不墨守成规,敢于勇敢做自己哪怕别人看着奇怪的学生。达特茅斯学院也喜爱对学习有激情,对社会有责任感的学生。在达特茅斯,你能看到装扮成公鸡的人,或者染着蓝色头发为千里之外的村庄募捐净化水源资金的人!我甚至也是穿着五彩斑斓的一分子,达特茅斯是大胆独特个性鲜明的一片胜地。

  2. What impressed you most when studying at Dartmouth? Or in what way you changed during your time in Dartmouth?

  在达特茅斯上学是怎样一番感受?

  The nature of New Hampshire was something that I unexpectedly grew to love. I have lived most of my life in cities and I didn’t think I could ever fall in love with nature. Attending Dartmouth has taught me to appreciate the serenity  and beauty of rivers, forests, and bright stars on a clear night. During the summer, students could always go down to the river to swim or canoe. I often  went hiking in the nearby mountains with friends during weekends. During  winters, students would enjoy snowball fights, go sledding, and build snowmen. Dartmouth made nature an integral part of my college experience.

  达特茅斯学院所在的新罕布什尔州有着我不会享受的自然环境。我想,我在城市中长大,对自然完全不感冒。在新罕布什尔州,达特茅斯学院教会了我去感恩自然之美,感谢山川河流,夏夜星空。夏天的新罕布什尔州,游泳或者皮划艇都太寻常不过了。我喜欢和三五好友暴走山林。冬天的新罕布什尔州,雪是主题:打雪仗,滑雪橇,堆雪人。自然是达特茅斯学业生涯中必不可缺的部分,也教会了我去享受自然环境。

  3. What makes Dartmouth different from the other Ivy League schools?

  与其他藤校相比,达特茅斯的独特之处是什么?

  I would say Dartmouth’s academic system is one aspect that makes it very different from other Ivy League institutions. Dartmouth offers a special academic system called the D-Plan that allows students to customize their study  schedule each year. Dartmouth’s school year is comprised of four ten-week terms for each season (i.e. fall, winter, spring, and summer) and Dartmouth gives students the freedom to choose how they want to use each term. You can stay on  campus to study instead of returning home for the summer. You can study in the  UK or South Korea for a term. You can also use a term to leave campus for an  internship to gain work experience. You can even leave campus in the winter if  you hate the cold!

  我觉得达特茅斯的学术体制是在藤校中及其突出的。达特茅斯的校历是把全年分成四个学期,每个学期十周,恰似春夏秋冬四季。我们称之为D-Plan,一个创造只属于你自己的学年行程,自己选择是去实习还是去留学抑或待在校园里学习。去哪里留学都是自己说了算,不论是英国还是韩国。实习也是没问题的。或者,在冬天离开新罕布什尔州,因为这里的冬天有零下30度这么冷!

  4. What are the career opportunities for Psychology graduates in the US?

  在美国心理学就业前景好吗,心理学本科的就业方向有哪些?

  Since psychology majors tend to have a good understanding of people and emotions, they are able to find jobs in any industry that requires a lot of interpersonal interaction or strong communication skills. One popular area for  psychology students is human resources, helping to recruit valuable talent to a company or to solve social issues within an office. A psychology student can even use their people skills and creativity in the field of marketing to  persuade consumers to buy a product or conduct research to find out what consumers like. A psychology major can also work as an academic researcher at a university to uncover mysteries of the human mind. The job opportunities for  psychology majors are growing as different industries realize the importance of understanding people.

  其实心理学是一门了解人类情感的学科,任何需要人际沟通技巧的工作都可以为心理学专业学生所发挥。其中心理学专业的毕业生最喜欢人力资源这个职业,简单来说就是利用所掌握的人际技巧为公司招聘人才,解决办公室内部问题。还有,心理学专业毕业生真的可以通过一些技巧来达到市场销售份额的。除了以上两类工作,学术研究也很适合。心理学专业毕业生的就业情况随着不同行业对认识人理解人的重要性加强而越来越宽阔。

  5. What if psychology graduates want to study more in graduate school? Normally what majors are very recommended?

  本科学心理学,读研有什么相关的申请方向呢?

  Many psychology undergraduates go to graduate school to focus on a specific field of psychology. A few examples of popular psychology graduate programs include clinical psychology, education, social psychology, and cognitive  psychology.

  Clinical psychology is the study of mental illness and how to treat patients with mental disorders. A graduate program in education will focus on how the human brain learns and how to employ different teaching techniques. A  student of social psychology will study how human beings interact with each other in groups and society, while a cognitive psychologist studies mental processes like memory, perception, and the use of language, creativity, and  problem solving.

  很多心理学本科生会进入研究生院深入的研究某一个细分领域。比如目前较为流行的临床心理学,教育心理学,社会心理学和认知心理学等领域。临床心理学是应用心理学的重要分支,它研究一切人类行为,探讨这些行为的论据断、评估、分类、治疗、预防和科学研究。临床心理学的研究生课程会关注人类行为以及教授分析技术。社会心理学则侧重社会中人与人之间的关系;认知心理学研究人的高级心理过程,主要是认知过程,如注意、知觉、表象、记忆、思维和言语等,可以根据自己不同的兴趣以及职业方向来选择深造。
