FallOn CampusFavorite Class: REL 8: Introduction to Islam
Though I had studied Islam in the past, this class provided an in-depth study into the creation of the Islamic faith, as well as how it was perceived by the outside world. Furthermore, the class stresses that Islam is not a monolith and explores how perceptions and practices differ amongst the religion's practitioners.
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: GOVT 5: International Politics
I've always had an interest in international issues so I decided to take GOVT 5 - International Politics with Professor Wohlforth. I enjoyed the wide range of aspects covered in the class, as well as professor Wohlforth himself.

SummerKosovoFavorite Class: Security & Development in Kosovo
My freshman experience at Dartmouth broadened my perspective, expanding my interests to the international level. I studied in Kosovo, at the Rochester Institute of Technology- Kosovo. I also interned at the Kosovo Property Agency. This was made possible by Dartmouth's Dickey Center for International Understanding
FallOn CampusFavorite Class: Govt 54: US Foreign Policy
This class covers US foreign policy from the beginning of the 19th century until the present. I really enjoyed the ample time allotted to class discussion. The readings cover a broad range of strategies and historical events as well.
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: FILM 22 Film History III (1960 to 1990)
This class surveyed films across of world from 1960 to around 1990. One film in particular, "Ali: Fear Eats the Soul"--a German film--is amongst my all-time favorites.
SpringOn-CampusFavorite Class: GOVT 30.11 Policy Implementation
To be completely honest, the best part about this course is Professor Dr. Nachlis. That being said, there are a ton of important and enlightening topics covered in this course.
Don't worry, this course is also cross-listed as film class. Professor Isenberg from the New School comes to Dartmouth every summer to teach this course on European Exiles who came to Hollywood to make some of the most enduring films. Almost every film we viewed instantly turned into one of my favorites--and who doesn't want to spend part of the summer viewing movies.
FallOn-CampusFavorite Class: FILM 33 Writing for the Screen I
Surprise! another film class. It's not too often you can be so creative, but this screenwriting class allows writers to write any film of their choice while receiving feedback from the professor and the class.
You went to the Balkans?
Similar to Adina's internship made possible by the Dickey Center's Global Health Internship Program, I had the opportunity to study at the Rochester Institute of Technology Kosovo (RIT Kosovo)
