MeowMeowMeow Posted March 8, 2014 Share Posted March 8, 2014 (edited) Hi, I've been accepted to the University of Toronto's Department of Political Science. I'm a comparativist/ Russianist. I like the program a lot but have some hesitations about pursuing a Canadian degree in a US-centered market. I've been accepted to American programs but find Toronto's to be a good fit and want to examine its pros and cons. Here are my basic assumptions: - Canadian schools lean qualitative. US schools lean quant. Both offer both. - Job-market aside, Toronto can place TT and post-docs just as an American university can. (The issue is the visa.) Here are my questions: - Will a Canadian PhD pose professional risk In an American market? - Will I (as an American citizen) be eligible for federal and private grant opportunities to the same degree as if I were at an American university? Thank you for your insights. Edited March 8, 2014 by MeowMeowMeow Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
