Join us for a free virtual workshop on the United Nations!
After careful review and discussion of the situation in New York City regarding COVID-19, MMC will not offer the United Nations Intensive in New York this summer. Instead, we invite to join us for an informative afternoon session.
Virtual Program Description
This program will explore the key aspects of the history, theory, and practice of the United Nations (UN). We will also examine some of the critical issues the UN is currently confronting—including the UN’s engagement with the COVID-19 epidemic. This session will be led by Professor Andreas Hernandez, Ph.D., Chair of MMC’s International Studies Department. We will also be joined by Dr. Amit Bhattacharyya, a retired senior official of the UN Secretariat, who will speak about his diverse experiences as a UN practitioner and field questions from students about life and work in the UN system.

Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis, so apply early. The application deadline is June 22, 2020. A letter of recommendation is no longer required.
