United Nations Summer Study (UNSS) program will be organized and operate entirely online for Summer 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The program provides graduate and undergraduate students with knowledge and skills for understanding the United Nations system, and offers preparation for a career in international affairs. 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’s online coursework prepares you to analyze 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 through remote consultancy work with the UN system.

Application and admission into the United Nations Summer Study program is required to take this course. For more information, send an email to
