عجفت الغور

masters while working blog post


I’ve just wrapped up coursework for my MA in Near Eastern Studies, and I figured I’d write up a story about how this has worked out so far.

I originally started in 2020, when I applied to attend as a non-degree student at the Hagop Kevorkian center.

  • Admitted and matriculated in the fall
  • did stuff over covid
  • covid actually helped out in finding spare time to take classes
  • two years later, I’ve gotten all my classes down
  • did summer classes at SOAS and a class at CUNY GC
  • knocked out some requirements in two years, now spending the third year wrapping up my thesis in Iraq
