Summary

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, peacebuilding, and environmental issues. UNSS course work prepares you to understand and engage with contemporary issues, policies, and debates in international affairs. UNSS internships and practicums, not found in any other UN summer program, enable you to gain hands-on experience in the UN system.

The course runs from June 1-July 17, 2015.

Core curriculum (3 graduate or 4 undergraduate credits): $4,300

Core curriculum and practice-based curriculum (6 graduate or 8 undergraduate credits): $8,600

Non-credit option (only core curriculum): $2,300

Tuition covers classes, colloquium, tours and visits. Housing fees are separate.
