POL3100 Model United Nations (3)
Enrollment by instructor approval only. Each year the university fields one delegation, representing one country, to either the Harvard National Model United Nations conference in Boston, Massachusetts or the Yale Security Council Simulation in New Haven, Connecticut. These conferences simulate the activities of the UN General Assembly, Security Council or other bodies of the UN. This class prepares students to participate in these conferences. In weekly meetings students study pertinent world issues and the function-ing of the United Nations, conduct research, and prepare written position papers and other materials necessary for the conference.
