"As a prospective student, I attended the MSFS class “Identity and Conflict” with Professor Mark Habeeb. Identity and the construction of narratives is fascinating to me, and I felt really inspired by the depth of the curiosity and experience that the students all brought to the conversation. The professor also clearly had an incredible amount of knowledge on the topic and had invited in a guest speaker with on-the-ground experience in conflict resolution related to the class topic: Israel and Palestine. I came away from that one short class feeling like I had gained a lot of new insights into the nature of conflict and the role of identity. I chose Georgetown because, after visiting, my anxiety about starting what I knew would be a very difficult and stressful master’s program started to change to genuine excitement. As a current student, the discussions I have had with professors and fellow students have been really rewarding, and the MSFS program’s focus on practical skills will help me perfect my ability to write concisely, research efficiently, and present confidently, all of which will be essential to my success as a Foreign Service Officer.”
