    Muhammed Korany

    “The New School teaches you to think critically,” says Muhammed Korany (MA International Affairs, ’17). “That’s an invaluable skill. It’s one that you can’t pick up just from a course. [Thinking critically] is the culture that the Julien J. Studley Graduate Program in International Affairs breeds; that culture of empathy, being able to talk, understand, and think about situations before acting.”

    Korany currently works as a protection assistant with the Danish Refugee Council, a non-profit organization operating a refugee camp in Greece.

    “I need to be challenged in life, need to be doing something of purpose,” Korany says, “and I think that’s something I learned at International Affairs, something I learned at The New School.”
