IPE students should consider taking Model United Nations (IPE 191) in the spring semester. Students will research the topics to be debated at an MUN simulation in order to represent the positions of their selected countries. The class will likely attend the Los Angeles Model UN conference hosted by UCLA, April 16-19. (visit http://www.bruinmun.org/college_conference.asp)
MUN is a .25 unit activity and will meet once per week, Wednesdays 2:00-2:50. Please note that some fees may be required. The costs of conference registration and lodging are typically covered by Puget Sound but students will likely have to pay for their transportation to LA and food expenses.
No prior experience with Model UN is necessary to take this course.
