United Nations Seminar

Get a firsthand view of world politics

Since 1996, international studies faculty have facilitated the United Nations Seminar, an annual program that allows students to embark on a unique academic experience within a nontraditional learning environment while earning course credit.

The United Nations Seminar gives students the opportunity to get a firsthand view of the role of the United Nations in world politics at the United Nations headquarters in New York City. Students receive briefings from United Nations officials on peacekeeping, refugees, human rights, sustainable development and many other topics. Students also meet with UN mission representatives. In the past, our students have met with diplomats from the United States, United Kingdom, France, Russia, China, Iran, Iraq, India, Pakistan, Japan, Israel, Palestine, Tanzania, South Africa, Mexico, Brazil and many other nations.

  • I was part of the Turning Responsibility Into Powerful Service (TRIPS) program on campus, and that’s actually what got me my internship. One winter we went on a children’s medical trip to a hospital in Memphis, Tenn. It was a life-changing experience. I highly recommend taking an alternative break with TRIPS; it’s so fulfilling.
