Sara has been enrolled into the program?s foreign policy discipline, titled ?Grand Strategy in Context: Institutions, People and the Making of US foreign Policy.?
?It is a first-class course where only eighteen participants from around the world have been selected to participate,? said Sara, speaking from New York. ?As a group lecturing US foreign policy, this course develops our practical understanding on how the US foreign policy is formulated, implemented and taught. It will help us improving our syllabus and curriculum.?
