The New School – United Nations Summer Study program

The United Nations Summer Study (UNSS) program, offered by The New School’s Graduate Programs in International Affairs, puts graduate, undergraduate, and Ph.D. 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 peacebuilding, and environmental and reform issues. UNSS coursework 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.

To apply for the UN Summer Study program, you must complete the online application and upload the following four documents:

  • A recent résumé or CV
  • A brief statement of purpose (approximately 300-500 words)
  • Unofficial transcripts
  • A writing sample (a professional/academic paper that showcases your writing ability, usually 10-15 pages)
