Course Description

This is a unique course designed for students who want to learn about the United Nations through readings, lectures, and diplomatic role playing. The goals of the course are to equip students with a basic understanding of the UN System and to provide them with an opportunity to apply the concepts and ideas that they have learned in other diplomacy classes to a hands-on simulation of the UN General Assembly. Students will learn the skills necessary for effective group interaction such as working together as a team, conveying your ideas through written and verbal proposals, understanding the perspectives of other participants, and problem solving through negotiation, bargaining, and compromise.
