The End - 2000 to 2009

American Universities Expand in the Muslim World


At Education City in Doha, Qatar’s capital, they can study medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell University, international affairs at Georgetown, computer science and business at Carnegie Mellon, fine arts at Virginia Commonwealth, engineering at Texas A&M, and soon, journalism at Northwestern.

Why couldn’t my school have a study abroad program at ‘Education City’.  It would have made learning spoken Arabic a lot easier.
