Associate Professor, Director, Center for United Nations and Global Governance Studies
School of Diplomacy and International Relations, Seton Hall

In this Professional Development Podcast, Professor Martin Edwards speaks with Alistair Edgar about the new Certificate in United Nations Studies at Seton Hall University. Professor Edwards describes the development and growth of the School of Diplomacy and the Center for UN and Global Governance Studies (an ACUNS institutional member), as part of the higher education landscape in the New York City area. Edwards then highlights various dimensions of the new Certificate program, which is aimed at serving the needs and interests of early- and mid-career professionals of all kinds who wish to build their knowledge and understanding of the UN system, as well as recent graduates who wish to gain practical knowledge in the field. The Certificate program offers this opportunity, in a convenient and flexible framework of required and optional classes, without committing students to a two-year Masters degree.
