About the Program: CCNY Model United Nations Program prepares students for simulations of the United Nations in class and at local level, leading to a national exercise, held in New York City. Throughout two semesters, students examine major issues facing the United Nations, learn about the work of its specialized agencies, and explore the world of multilateral diplomacy. Students also engage in research applying the case study method. They are introduced to the practice of international diplomacy through presentations and experiential learning activities. CCNY MUN Program with its two academic courses are designed to prepare students for the national conference as well as to provide general knowledge about international organizations.
