So I'm regular lurker who just registered now to seek the advice of those better in-the-know. Nice to actually meet you all! I was wondering if I could seek advice on admissions.
Some background: I'm an American undergrad student majoring in history at a major public university. My historic focus has been political thought and British empire. I'm writing an honors thesis and my cumulative GPA is 4.0/4.0. Two history professors have offered to write letters of recommendation.
My interest moving forward is foreign policy/international relations and ultimately law. I'm looking to apply for an MSc. Considering my strength in terms of classes taken and past research focus has been historic, should I safely stick with applying to programs like Empires, Colonialism, Globalisation and History of International Relations? Or would I have a decent shot at closer to what I want to do, which would be Global Politics or International Relations? Or perhaps list one for top choice and one for second from each category?
Thanks in advance for any insight!
