You want to work for social justice at the global level but most United Nations study programs take you sightseeing. Do you want just a cursory tour or do you want to immerse yourself in international affairs?
The United Nations Summer Study (UNSS) program, offered by The New School’s Graduate Program in International Affairs, puts graduate and undergraduate students on the ground in the United Nations and in New York City. Unlike other UN study programs, UNSS takes you beyond a narrow focus on security and diplomacy to investigate development, human rights, humanitarian action, peacekeeping and peace-building, environmental, and reform issues. UNSS course work prepares you to understand and engage with contemporary issues, policies, and debates in international affairs. UNSS practicums, not found in any other UN summer program, enable you to gain hands-on experience in the UN system.
UNSS offers three options:
Option 1: Core Curriculum (4 undergraduate credits)
Option 2: Core+Practice (8 undergraduate credits)
Option 3: Non-credit
The program runs from June 4 to July 20, 2018.
Early Application Deadline: February 15, 2018
