Mesopotamian Social Sciences Academy

The Mesopotamian Social Sciences Academy is a co-educational university in Qamishli, the capital of the de facto autonomous region, the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria.[1] The academy opened in 2013 offering classes in criticism and self-criticism, the democratic system and Kurdish language.[2]

The school year has three terms, lasting 3-4 months each. The curriculum consists mainly of history and sociology classes.[2] Jineoloji is also taught there.[3] Teaching occurs mainly in Kurdish.[2]

There was a book donation drive organised early in the life of the university, which, amongst others, was donated to by AK Press.[4]
