The Enigma of War

This semester I took the last Honor’s class I needed in order to fulfill my designation. The title of the course promised to be a heavy subject, but after I heard the description of the course directly from the instructor, I was convinced this would be an enjoyable class for me.

As part of the second semester of our intensive Arabic program, we’ve been taking topics courses in Arabic on revolution, religion, the history of Morocco and political institutions in Morocco. Our classes are now mixed levels and we’ve been […]
