As an IGST MENA major, this class was a great way to get quickly acquainted with the region. It was certainly at the 200 level, as it was not difficult if you showed up, got the gist of the reading, and turned things in on time. There are two op-ed-style articles due during the year, and I enjoyed this type of assessment. She left great comments and genuinely seemed to care about her students and their improvement.

This class is a requirement for my major IP&E and taking it with professor Gumuscu was definitely the right choice. Her discussions are interesting and fun. The essays are not easy but she is very open to meeting with students in office hours and giving personalized advice.

It is really hard to make Qualitative Methods exciting, but Prof. Gumuscu definitely made it at least tolerable. The readings are quite dull, but she really doesn't spend much time on them in class so it didn't matter very much. The evaluation was very easy (we spent the whole semester designing a study which was almost our entire grade) and she was very accommodating. She really does her best to make this class simple, approachable, and worthwhile.
