  1. What email address were you trying for the History dept?
  2. I'm in the EAS MA program at UofT right now. They don't need IELTS but they do need TOEFL. And you'll want to cut your research proposal down, UofT gives you 500 words (a good time to work on being concise in your writing haha). If you have any other questions about the program you can PM me! edit: The advice one of my LOR writers gave me for the statement of purpose was, with only 500 words, absolutely no fluff. Get straight to the point.
  3. I wouldn't say that this is a) normal for Canadian PhDs or b) means that the programs are less rigorous. Most Canadians PhDs will have coursework but it is also usually the case that you need an MA before you start your PhD in Canada. It is very rare that someone enters a Canadian humanities PhD without an MA. Canada also has far, *far* fewer universities, especially top universities, so many tenure-track positions will be held by American PhDs.
  4. Thought I would start a new thread for the fall. I'm starting my MA in East Asian Studies. What about everyone else?
