PhD Humanities vs. Communications & Culture

Recommended Posts

I got admission offers from both Humanities and Communications & Culture at York University and need to make a choice between the two programs. What would be the most important factors to consider? Which program would you choose and why?

I’m not familiar with the programs, but the most important thing I would consider is what is it you want to study and which program has the faculty that will help you achieve your research and career goals. What area of research lead you to apply to those two programs, and who is there that you want to work with. Also do their research methods vary? Which method is a better fit for you interests, career goals, and the way you like to work. Since they’re at the same school, you’ll be able to take classes from both programs, so I would pick the one that aligns most closely with your future goals, or which has the faculty that you think you will work best with.

Great advice, thank you!
