About the Program
Students interested in the study of international relations have the unique opportunity to participate in the Semester on the United Nations. This fall semester program, directed by a Drew faculty member, offers focused study of an important international organization. On Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the semester, the students meet in New York at the Drew facility on United Nations Plaza. Speakers from various organizations associated with the United Nations share their insights about how the organization functions and how it deals with the issues confronting it. Students participate in segments of the same training developed for diplomats new to the United Nations. This is an eight-credit program, and students take two additional courses on campus to complete a full academic schedule.
