Conflicts and Controversies sounds very it an elective? What topics do you you include current day issues, or conflicts and controversies from the past, or both?

Hey Joe,

Congratulations! Did you have to take the GRE in order to apply? If so, when did you prepare for it and take it. That would be great if you could get started on your doctorate. It is definitely a huge time commitment, though. Let me know if you go ahead with it. Have you been looking for and applying for any administrative positions recently? I hope all is going well for you.

Have you been actively looking into going back for your doctorate recently? Which program are you leaning toward? Did you start yet? How is your school year going? I hope all is well.
