The United Nations Summer Study (UNSS) program, offered by The New School’s Julien J. Studley Graduate Programs in International Affairs, puts graduate, undergraduate, and PhD students on the ground in the United Nations and in New York City. Unlike other UN study programs, UNSS takes you beyond a narrow focus on security and diplomacy to investigate development, human rights, humanitarian action, peacekeeping and peacebuilding, and environmental and reform issues. UNSS coursework prepares you to understand and engage with contemporary issues, policies, and debates in international affairs. UNSS practicums, not found in any other UN summer program, enable you to gain hands-on experience in consultancy work with the UN system.

The program offers 3 options for students:

Option 1: Core Curriculum - (3 graduate or 4 undergraduate credits) - Class "The United Nations and World Order"; Colloquia with UN staff and international affairs professionals; Site Visits to UN headquarters and other international agencies.

Option 2: Core Curriculum + Practicum - (6 graduate or 8 undergraduate credits)

Option 3: Non-Credit - includes class, colloquia, site visits, and NYC experience without earning academic credits.
