So I'm quite sick of Madrid, I hate my job, most of my uni friends are now abroad or will be next year and things are kind of stale with my hometown friends because we always do the same old shit, and therefore I've decided I need to find me a master's degree for next year.

Now, I've searched through the postgraduate and graduate (the terminology varies from one side of the pond to another) programmes of basically all universities in the UK, Ireland and Canada, and I've found some tasty stuff, but I have no idea where to start looking as far as American universities are concerned. There's so many of them, and there seems to be little in the way of a uniform system, which I guess is great for the liberty of the individual states but it's not all that hot for me.

So, where do you guys go to look for this kind of stuff? Do you have to rely on friends, relatives and professors telling you about legendary graduate programmes, or is there a better way?

Also, recommend me universities, colleges or whatever, I guess. I want to do something like audiovisual translation, or, failing that, maybe literary translation. You know, something cool like that.

That's great, Soccy. Thanks!

Dimi, I checked Villanova and they don't have anything that interests me aside from you. Plus it looks preppy or something?

While you guys are at it, someone tell me if I should go to University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Texas-Austin, University of Colorado-Boulder, or University of Virginia for my astronomy PhD.

Or possibly University of Hawaii. I'm at the very top of their wait list at the moment.

I know nothing about astronomy programs, but UT Austin and UVA are fucking awesome (fun) schools.

I wouldn't choose Hawaii. It doesn't sound serious. Makes me think of Dennis Nedry.

Hey Ztolk, I looked at the list of McGill's programmes to no avail. It doesn't matter though, I wouldn't want to live in Montreal because I would feel bad unless I learned French.

Hawaii has a cool observatory right? Living in Hawaii would be cool as shit. Austin is a great town too.



Sukkit basically just stick to within 100 miles of an ocean (gulf of mexico doesn't count) and you'll probably be OK.

I'm not sure, I don't like beaches and all that. Probably not going to look for anything in California.

(Mostly because I'd prefer to be in the East Coast or the Midwest to allow some form of communication with the people I'll be leaving behind)

I don't think the 'within 100 miles of an ocean' comment was about having fun at the beach.

I don't think it has to be about liberals, population in general tends to settle along the coasts. There is a lot of empty space between the Atlantic and Pacific. Of course any major city is going to have lots of people around, but it's going to be a long drive to the next city.

And beaches are awesome, seriously dude?

Are there any in particular that you're looking at? I know a few Italians in Montreal studying translation, but not at McGill. There are like seven universities here.
