    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course introduces students to the traditions and cultures of the Middle East. The professor is a very erudite scholar who engages students in a challenging way. She asks students to draw connections between past and present to understand the Middle East. Additionally, you also learn about the shared customs of the three Abrahamic faiths.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed learning about Fatima Amara's theory about Middle Eastern populations. This theory gives some explanation to why Jewish minorities have been persecuted thorought history. I also learned about how Ibn Khaldun's theories were later proven to be true about the layers of the earth.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have a range of books to choose from and you should choose a book that you enjoy. It's very important to attend class lectures and participate in class discussion.
