1) Should we start enquiring about TA/RA positions with especific faculty before arriving to Fletcher, during the first semester, during the second...? What's the standard timeline to form these collaborations?2) Are there any established forms of collaboration with faculty outside RAs/TAs (through publication, through sporadic collaboration with different research groups, etc.)3) Can we pursue RAs/TAs positions with faculty members of Tufts University at large (outside Fletcher's core faculty) and with other universities, such as Harvard?Thank you!
Will we be able to take zero classes of different fields of study? If yes, how can we opt for them?

There is growing recognition of how injustices and unequal power dynamics, rooted in systemic racism, have been perpetuated through development efforts. I am interested, in the context of international relations, on how to center those closest to the problem as those closest to the solution.How are your classes acknowledging existing power dynamics and uplifting the expertise of communities? And do your research projects reflect an anti-racist lens or use participatory practices? Thank you! I know these are tough questions 🙂
Hello! How frequently are course readings updated and in case students request a particular theme to be added to a course, is that a welcome practice?
Hello, thank you so much for this session! Was wondering how important it is to have a regional focus?
Hi everyone, My name is Marilia and I was just admitted in the MIB’s program. I would like to specialize in the field of International Economic Relations within the MIB so I can work with international macroeconomics and International business. Keeping this in mind, what kind of RA or TA positions would be more interested? And how important would be for me to have a PhD in the macroeconomics area so It gets more easier for me to find a job in the multilateral organization? Since these kind of organizations can give the opportunity for international employees the G4 visa .
Thank you so much for giving such a detailed answer

Q for Prof. Patrick Schena: It's expected to have an extensive quantitative background to enroll in your courses? Are there any courses that ask for prerequisites like introductory econometrics?
How would you says Fletcher’s MALD program compares against traditional MPA / MPP programs? Is there any specific area of expertise at Fletcher which sets the MALD apart? Also if you could clarify the different kind of job roles students may land after pursuing a MALD vs a MPA / MPP. Personally I am interested in exploring fields of Human Rights / Human Security
Thanks a lot Nick and all the three Professors for such detailed answers and a very interactive session
Thank you Professor Schena for your answer and all the other professors and Nick!
