eyeshadow Posted September 23, 2016 Share Posted September 23, 2016 Hi, I am going to apply for phD programs this fall, and I've been wondering how common it is to get a recommendation from professors of other discipline. I am currently in a MA program in English department, but in undergrad my major has been a social science discipline (politics to be more precise). I will ask two LORs from professors of my current department, but Im thinking maybe the third one can come from a politics professor who knows a lot about my academic passion and drive. My only worry is that while this could be a good opportunity for me to stand out (as my SOP also talks about my strength and interest in interdisciplinary approach), it could make me seem detached from English lit. People are just telling me it could be a risk and perhaps radical. Any advice? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
