International Relations at Western or Queens?

Does anyone else want to take international relations or a similar course at queens? I've been accepted to both and have seen both campuses, I'm leaning a lot towards Western just because they have the program, a beautiful big campus in a bigger town, and I can get a scholarship with my average. I just wanted others' opinions :) Thanks !

Both schools sound suitable to you. Where do you live closer to if that plays any factor in your decision-making...

I live closer to Western so I guess that's more convenient, though it doesn't really matter too much to me. :)

Queen's doesn't have a IR program but the political studies program is quite good, and they have a lot of upper year IR-related courses in POLS. Nonetheless though, it won't be the same amount as majoring in IR, and you'd be forced to take courses that would not be specific to IR.
Global development studies also has IR related course material, but maybe just 0.5 - 1.0 credits a year.

I'd pick Western just for the fact they have an IR program, rather than Queen's where you'd end up taking courses you're not in favour of and have to strongly research courses to build an IR-intensive timetable.
