[MDES W3201] Introduction to Classical Arabic Literature

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Shareah is a young and enthusiastic professor who is always willing to help her students in and out of the classroom. Her genuine passion for Arabic Literature is quite contagious and definitely got me a lot more interested in the subject. She's extremely knowledgeable about Arabic literature and is always happy share her expertise. She is very approachable and will take the time to guide a student in whatever particular aspect of the subject interests them. She'll go above and beyond to help a student out, and is even willing to tailor her office hours to her students' schedules. I highly recommend the class no matter what your major is!


The workload isn't that bad and the material is always interesting. She's also a fair grader. Shareah is really good about letting students write about whatever part of the syllabus interests them.
