NEW IR Course for Spring 2015

Hello P&G Majors and Minors,

I wanted to make you are aware that we just added a new course for Spring term.  US Foreign Policy in the Middle East will meet at 10-10:50 am on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays. Since it is being added late, it is likely to be a smaller class and smaller classes are rare in IR, so I urge you to consider the class. Prerequisite: PG 103 recommended.

After briefly exploring the history of the US in the region we will grapple with the US role in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the multiple challenges in US-Iran relations, the escalating war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, and much more. So if you have a desire to grapple with the challenges the US faces in this important but tumultuous region, sign up.

The course is open for registration on People Soft.  If you have any problems adding, please contact Lori Blake in the Registrar’s office and she will be happy to assist you.

Best regards,
Kelly Erickson
