Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (NPSIA) Reference Letter Help


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am in the process of applying to the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs. For those of you currently enrolled in this Masters Program, can you please give me some advice on the reference letter component. 

Its been 2 years since I've graduated university and I have been working full-time as an administrative & financial clerk,  so I was going to provide once academic and one non-academic. For the non-academic, is it better I ask my current manager or should I ask my former manager from my old job? I've been at my job for a few months, since June. For the academic I plan on asking a prof that I took my senior political science courses with (the 400 level mixed with grad students). Also what should my references include in the letter? What should they mostly touch on?

The problem with providing 2 academic is that I checked the political science department at my former university and literally every professor that taught me no longer teaches there. Its already a challenge to be able to find one.

Thank you!!
