Model United Nations
Model United Nations is an experiential course offered by the Department of Politics every spring. Students learn about the United Nations system and contemporary issues in global politics through preparation for and participation in Model United Nations of the Far West, a five-day, intercollegiate Model United Nations simulation hosted every April in San Francisco. We have also participated in the National Model United Nations Conference in New York.
The course regularly oversubscribes, so if you are interested in participating in the course next spring, please contact me and I will email you ahead of spring registration.
Veterans of the HSU Model UN program should join us on Facebook!
