Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, UNSS will adhere to “social distancing” practices to ensure the welfare of participants and to contribute to addressing the pandemic. Accordingly, UNSS 2020 has been reformatted: The core class, The United Nations and World Order, and UNSS practicums will be entirely online. The main change to the program is that there will be no site visits and presently the prospects for colloquia are uncertain. Given this, the cost of the program has been dramatically reduced for summer 2020.
The United Nations Summer Study (UNSS) program, offered by The New School’s Julien J. Studley Graduate Programs in International Affairs, brings together professionals, graduate, and advanced undergraduate students for an on-the-ground experience with the United Nations and in New York City. United Nations Summer Study takes you beyond a narrow focus on security and diplomacy to investigate development, human rights, humanitarian action, peacebuilding, and environmental issues. United Nations Summer Study course work prepares you to understand and engage with contemporary issues, policies, and debates in international affairs.
