社会学是对于社会的研究,而我向来对人很感兴趣。

Question

How to choose between passion and career prospects?

在热爱与前途之间抉择时的关键要素有哪些?

“For me, it’s passion. But instead of thinking about this as in one choice over the other, you should be more open-minded and consider what you like to do and how to combine it with what can support you.”

对我来说,其实是热爱。但相较于从中挑选一个,我们应当拓宽思维,思考如何把热爱与事业结合起来。

Question 4

 

What are your views on minoring or double majoring and the connection between major and career?

您对辅修和双修,以及专业与工作的对口问题有什么看法?

I think it’s great that you can take different majors and courses to expand your horizon and interests.”

能够学习不同的专业与不同的课程真的很好。

它能拓宽你的视野,拓宽你的兴趣。

 

“Regarding major and career, it depends on different job markets, and some jobs require technical skills to enter. Others are not so.”

关于专业与职业,我所理解的是,这真的取决于不同的行业市场,有些工作会要求更强的技术能力,其它则不然。

 

Question 5

Any advice to offer our students when they feel discouraged about their majors?

对那些因个人专业而感到沮丧的学生,您有什么建议呢?

“If there’s an advice I would give, just confront the problems and deal with them individually.”

如果让我来给一个建议,

就是步步为营地应对困难。

♪\(^o^)/♪

 

Question 7

 

Why come to UST to be a professor?

为什么来到科大任教?

“I like teaching. I really like to challenge students’ conventional thinking about certain things. I find that process really rewarding.”

我喜欢教书,我非常喜欢挑战学生们对一些事物的传统想法。这个过程在我看来收获匪浅。

 

Question 8

Any suggestions for students about balancing study and life?

有没有给学生们关于平衡学业与生活的建议?

“I think a student can try my ‘work hard, study hard, play hard’ strategy.”

“努力工作、努力学习、努力玩耍”

Question

What has your sensitivity and professional knowledge brought to you?

您对事物的敏感性以及专业知识为您带来了什么?

“If I learn a new Sociology concept, I just want to have them applied to my life.”

如果我学到了一个新的社会学概念,我会想要将它们应用到自己的生活中。

 

Question 10

 

Could you please share some insights on how to write a good essay?

那么您能否分享一些关于如何写出好的论文的见解?

“Real life will never have a correct answer. That there’s no one answer in jobs, work, or life. So the thing I can give to students is really to become interested in the objects.”

现实生活永远没有正确答案。

职业、工作、生活中皆没有绝对的答案。

所以我能告诉你们是真的要对事物感兴趣。

挑战传统思维,平衡学习生活,选择热爱,摒弃焦虑,感谢郑老师分享的智慧与哲理。
