What should my statement of purpose (goal statement) contain?

A statement of purpose should indicate an applicant’s intended field of study, potential advisor or supervisor in the Department, and likely career plans. Applicants are advised to be as specific as they can in describing their interests, though we do understand that specificity is not always possible, especially for M.A. applicants.
