POL 294 10 Intro to Model UN
Professor Oros

This course is offered in conjunction with participation in an off-campus Model United Nations simulation. Enrollment in the course is not required for participation in the simulation, but will offer supplemental instruction on the background and procedures of the United Nations as an institution, on how to write effective briefs and conduct effective research, and on how to best present research orally. Students will complete background written work on the United Nations, submit briefs on their committee topics for evaluation, and complete a post-simulation written exercise. The course will meet for 2 hours per week for six weeks, with meeting times determined collectively after registration. Two credits will be offered for successful completion and may apply as elective credit or to POL or INT major requirements. Prerequisite: Permission of instructor.
