My son is interested in McGill, and in studying International Relations. We live in the US. His SAT is 690 math, 780 verbal, super scored, and he has a 3.95 unweighted GPA so we think he has a decent chance of acceptance.
My concern is that McGill does not appear to have an IR major but rather a minor in the political science program. His goal is to work in international politics, perhaps for the US Dept of State or an NGO. He is also considering American Univerisity, William and Mary, and several other schools in the US.
I’d love to get feedback on the poly sci/IR minor program at McGill and any input as to how McGill might compare with American. He’s very intrigued by the idea of studying in Canada. Thank you!
