com I, Mahdi Hasan, am writing this letter of intent tothe graduate admission committee for the master of Communication Studies atMinnesota State University, Mankato. My motivation to study CommunicationStudies was derived from the Masters Group call ‘Sociological History of Islam’during my post-graduate coursework at the University of Dhaka. The inclusivesyllabus of the program provided me a deep lesson of the administrative systemsof various regimes. But I feel that the particular subject actually provoked myintellectual hunger for a better understanding of the social communication,administration and communication formulation system which help government andconcerning authority to take control over unwanted maladjustments.
Interest for the communication of the statebegan to rise since it is the machinery of the state which deals with itssubjects directly. Truly speaking I want to complement my understanding on howstates of the world make communication to govern their people and how these communicationpolicies are changed on the requirement of time. I am working on a project called ‘Fairer LabourMigration (FLM) in Bangladesh’ the purpose of this project is ensuring fairrecruitment system in the field of labour migration from Bangladesh.Communicate with migrant’s family and ensure their protection. Particularly, lackof communication skill 2.
8 million people are working with fear of their familysafety in many cases migration seeker villagers are victim of deceptionsometimes they lost their property and even home. This is possible to eliminateby proper communication with new migration seekers. After started my journeyfor field work I realize that it is totally intricate to deal with specificallywhen someone have to work with different communities with deteriorativecommunication skills. In addition to, it was quite unfamiliar according to myundergraduate study. However, I was assigned to collect data and takeinterviews, to tackle hurdle towards desire directions, all along withmaintaining the research ethics and equities.
That was my challengingexperiences whether I am able to take interviews or not this questions arosewhen I continuously refused from my schedule interviews it made me totallyfrustrated. I explored everything was challenging for me each respondent washard to deal with.Though an observation I found my lacking,interpersonal communication is needed to make exact rapport. I was desperate toinvolve my participants to response especially problem related with lack ofcommunication. After facing all of problem above I consult with my coordinator,a suggested methods change my way of working strategies and it gave me properfeedback. During my field work, the inconveniences I faced was interpersonaland cultural communication.
It made me to understand that how communicationskills is important to undertake any research. I identified the truth that isprecisely intangible to have interpersonal communication. Though, rectified attempt helped me to demonstrate myoptimum output towards field research. But truly speaking I feel I was neededto have a strong advanced interpersonal communication skills indeed to becomean effective researcher.Anyway, people become fascinated about things when theyidentified an effective desire inside them. As a citizen of over populatedcountry I witnessed many phenomena related with governing body, socialstructure and traditions which provoked my hunger to study History, it is abranch of effective experiences of our predecessors.
The exciting course studyand field assignment during my bachelors and masters inspired me to join asresearch assistant at RMRRU. Generally it wasn’t easy task for me lack ofcommunication skills often distracted my progress to become a successful professionalresearcher. I was very self-centered person on top of that my feeblecommunication skills, was degrading my field research. To be honest myinclination to become a successful researcher at field research have persuadedme to think about graduate school of communication. By which I can upgrade myinterpersonal communication skills which is prerequisite for any qualifiedresearcher.
