POL 303C Politics Workshop: United Nations

Course Description: The purpose of this politics workshop is to understand how intergovernmental systems, especially the United Nations' system, function.

Students will attain skills in communication, writing, research, public speaking, and negotiation as they relate to international relations and comparative politics. Skills will be practiced at competitive conferences at the local, regional, national, and international levels.
