Hi everyone, I've been accepted to both Columbia University and Yale University's PhD program in Political Science. My subfield at Columbia would be Comparative Politics with a minor in either American Politics, Law, or Economics, and I'd be concentrating in Political Economy at Yale. I like the faculty from both, was an econ major in undergrad and am very interested in studying voting behavior and electoral politics. It appears both departments have professors I'd be thrilled to do research with in this area. I love New York City, but also don't mind New Haven and don't want to make my choice based on location. Money is about the same for each program. How would you choose between them? A few questions I have with respect to both programs: 1) Does either program have a political leaning (more liberal faculty, more conservative faculty, etc)? 2) Which program has the better reputation in-field (not just the US News ranking), and which will be more respected by the everyday public? 3) How rigorous is the empirical research requirement in each program? 4) Which is better if you DON'T want to go into academia (I'd prefer to work for a think tank, research org, or the government/UN)
ESColumbiaAspirant posted a topic in ApplicationsHi, I am looking to apply for environmental policy PhD for the fall 2017 intake. I have an undergrad in economics from India and an MSc. in environmental management from UK. I have 3 years of work experience but only a year of that is in environmental research, other 2 years of work ex is in finance. I will be appearing for my GRE in September, though I currently score between 300-320 in my mocks. I wanted to know which programs should I apply to with my background? I found Ivy League colleges like SIPA columbia, FES Yale and Duke's PhD but I am skeptical of my ability to get admission in them. Are there any other PhD programs focusing on the management and/or policy side of the environment?
