  4. Hi, what about I am not dropping, but instead not finshing it by summer. this is because my MA is designed to be finished in 4 terms (including summer), a small portion can finish within one year which means they need to spend tremendous amount of time, which i dont want to.

The Frasier Institute was mentioned more than twice as much in 2018 as it was in 2014, as was the C.D. Howe Institute and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives. The Canadian Global Affairs Institute was mentioned about as frequently as last time (despite changing its name from the Canadian Defence and Foreign Affairs Institute). The Centre for
  11. Canada’s IR scholars were asked which three doctoral programs in Canada they would recommend for an academic career either in political science or international relations: The big three remain quite dominant, each listed at a far greater rate than the others. These three programs are generally the most “American” in terms of outlooks, methodology and past hiring practices — more quantitative, less focused on “critical” security studies, and more willing to hire Americans.
