This course is designed to introduce students to international relations and will help them develop the research, leadership, and communication skills necessary to become successful delegates to any Model United Nations conference, and to become active and responsible global citizens. These conferences are simulations of the actual United Nations where students take on the role as ambassadors of member countries to solve global problems and crises. Preparation to become a successful delegate will include research, writing, and defending their positions on various global issues confronting today’s international community. Group leadership and negotiation skills will be developed through simulations, debate, and project-based learning.
