University of Mosul to Reopen

University of Mosul, one of the largest public universities in Iraq, is said to have reopened on 25 November, but under the Islamic State's rules of gender segregation and strict adherence to islamic laws. According to the Diwan of Education (the Islamic States's version of a Ministry of Higher Education) the following faculties have been eliminated: archaeology, fine arts, law, philosophy, political science, sports, tourism and hotel administration. The diwan has also canceled classes involving studies of democracy, non-Islamic culture and human rights in all faculties. References to the Republic of Iraq have been replaced with references to the Islamic State.
