  1. Ha! Update on the TA situation. I was informed by the department and the prof that my TA job would be sort of "student outreach" and wouldn't require any knowledge of the material. Okay, no worries! Then, like two days later, the prof emails me to say that the TA needs of the class have been reassessed, that she can no longer use me, and that I'll likely be reassigned. It's been about 5 days since then, and I'm still attached to the class, but my "Total Hours" of work is now set at 0. Back in limbo! Fun stuff.
  2. Got my TA assignment... PAPM 1001, "The Policy Cycle". I have very limited policy experience, and my first class on policy will be the mandatory "Policy Process and International Affairs" 1/2 semester class this Fall... so... not super confident with this assignment.
  3. Huh... maybe you'll be working on the Canadian Foreign Policy Journal?
  4. You should be able to find the syllabus on CULearn.
  5. Yep, planning on doing the IPIS diploma in year 2.
  6. Where are you doing the class? Is it through Carleton? Or did you take the one at Athabasca?
  7. I'm honestly tempted to take it, just because it's at a good time.
  8. Ooh, a new class has appeared in Carleton Central! INAF 5409: "Turkish Foregin [sic] Policy" Jesus... talk about niche... Or was it always there, and my mind just blanked it out?
  9. Intelligence and International Affairs is also an IPIS elective (cross-listed as IPIS 5303), so some of the spots may have been taken by students either doing MIPIS or the IPIS graduate diploma.
  10. Tentatively scheduled for Internet Governance! I wanted to take Technology and War, but it was full Doh... disregard. I thought I'd signed up for Internet Governance, but apparently signed up for Global Public Policy as well as Humanitarian Assistance instead (?)
  11. You have two years to get the 3 classes needed to fulfill your specialization. I figure the two IIA fall-term classes probably filled up with 2nd year students who couldn't do them in their first year (because 2nd year students in that year filled up the classes, ad.inf.) FWIW, they offered INAF 5204 this summer, so there's a chance it will get offered again next summer. (Also, I think DFP might be full... the only specialization I know for sure still has space is HDHP).
  12. Welp, registered for classes (and submitted the override request for 5204). I guess I'm sticking with IIA for the time being!
  13. Leaning IDP, HDHP, or IOGP. Also, I'm taking the fact that both of the Fall IIA classes are already marked as "full, no waitlist" as something of a sign from the universe. Actually, even the lone class that has no specialization (EU in International Affairs, 5805) is full
  14. Tentatively, signing up for Intelligence and International Affairs (5204), but I'm on the fence as to whether I want to stick with IIA... if they let me change specialization, I'd make a different pick
  15. French is my first language, and I submitted my government English testing results to the Carleton language and linguistics department, so I've got the language requirement done. But I also started taking Mandarin Chinese in undergrad, so I might just keep going with that through the MA, and maybe aim to do some HSK testing at the end.
  16. This page shows you the required courses for the program (which are INAF 5016, INAF 5017, and INAF 5018, all in first semester)*, and if you scroll down and click on your specialization on this page, it'll tell you which of the INAF economics classes you need to take for your specialization in the Winter term. *Note that, right now, the timetable planner is still listing INAF 5011 and 5012... those are going to renamed to 5017 and 5018 at some point between now and when registration opens.
  17. I don't think that will change until the registration window opens (July 3). When I click "Getting Started", it still lists me as a 4th year undergrad student. FWIW, I've never actually used the "Registration: Getting Started" page... I always just went through "Build Your Timetable/Registration". If you go through there, you can build a tentative timetable (a worksheet), and when registration opens, you'll be able to submit the classes you have on your worksheet. Pretty sure Kailey is going to go over the registration process during the webinars this coming Friday.
  18. Yeah, my question to her was whether they were just code swapping the two classes, or also changing the timeslots so that they're not listed at the same time (in case the classes aren't "on demand") Edit: I just realized I'm a total idiot. Since those two are 0.25 credit classes, 5017 is going to be in the first half of the semester, and 5018 in the second half, so it doesn't matter that the time is the same. I just facepalmed so aggressively that I woke/spooked my cat.
  19. Yeah, I just wrote to Lauren asking her if they're just changing the code (and keeping the times the same), or if the timeslot will change as well.
  20. They did indeed I don't think it was accurate anyway, as it still had INAF 5011 and 5012 listed (at exactly the same time, no less), rather than INAF 5017 and 5018, which apparently are the new mandatory classes. With that said, the class timetable builder should for this fall will be opening tomorrow (may even be available as of midnight tonight), assuming Central doesn't crash under the load.
  21. PSA for NPSIAns: If you go into Carleton Central, into "Build your Timetable/Registration", you can see what courses are on offer this fall by right clicking on the term drop-down menu, using "inspect element", and changing the "option value" from "202020" to "202030" (see the attached pics). You can also change that value to "202110" to see the classes on offer next winter. (Note, this isn't my trick... I found it here on the Carleton subreddit)
  22. The orientation powerpoint from 2018 (on page 24) says that you can only change from full- to part-time under "exceptional circumstances." I think there's an argument to be made that the present circumstances as "exceptional."
  23. I was originally thinking of leaving my job, which would have given me time to TA. The whole COVID crisis convinced me I'd be dumb to quit a government, and work is letting me do part-time instead for the duration of school (which means I keep accruing years of service, and don't give up the 7.5 years I've racked up so far). It'll probably be more stressful than TAing, but it's also way more money than Carleton was offering me for a TAship. As for the supervisor... I really don't know. I'm guessing you'd have to get that info from the department.
