Course Description

United Nations Summer Study practicums are group-based consulting projects with an inter-governmental or non-governmental organization. Student teams, with faculty oversight, work with their partner organization to define a need and develop a product, which may be data collection and analysis, a website or social media, policy recommendations, etc. Students gain invaluable professional experience in the operations of international organizations, their professional culture, and collaborative work in a group with strict deadlines. Each team will give a formal presentation of their final project to the client as well as UNSS. Practicum faculty supervisors will set meeting times and time commitment — given the narrow time frame of UNSS, it is expected that students participating in the practicum will devote at least ten to fifteen hours of work per week to this component. *Please note that UNSS practicums are not internships.
