Do LOR need to come from your disciplinary?

Recommended Posts

Do your letter of rec need to come from professors relating to your disciplinary, or just your major? 


For example, my research focus is on the Antebellum America, therefore would be detrimental to ask, say, a professor who teaches early modern Europe?

Not necessarily. I had a Criminal Justice prof as a letter writer because we did extensive research together, so he was the person who could speak the most extensively about my abilities in statistics & data analysis.
