Registration for Fall 2013 is upon us. In the next few weeks, faculty, including the Model UN adviser, will be available to discuss your choices of Fall 2013 courses and answer your questions about registration. Please stop by if you need advisement, or feel free to make an appointment to see faculty so we can make sure you’re on the right track with your courses. You should check your Pace Portal to see when you can begin registering.
Model UN for Pace University New York City is listed in the Fall 2013 schedule as POL303A Politics Workshop: International Organization, CRN 70263. It will meet from 6:10-9:00pm on Mondays. There are only 35 spots in the class, so make sure to register as soon as possible. To register you must have taken (or be registered to take) the prerequisite of POL114 Introduction to International Relations, though this may be waived if you have done Model UN or a similar program in high school or at a different university.
There are a variety of other classes offered in the Political Science department (including the Peace and Justice Studies program) next semester that may be of interest to Model UNers. Here is a partial list:
POL101 Politics: Comparative Introduction
