What is Model United Nations
Our MUN program introduces young people to the field of international affairs. Students step into the role of ambassadors as they simulate the actual United Nations in debate and negotiation, all in an effort to address a variety important issues facing the world today. Think of it as cosplay for ambassadors! 

What we do in Model United Nations
Our MUN students become immersed in timely global issues all while studying a blend of history, political science, and current events. They engage in rigorous academic preparation to understand the countries they will represent, the UN committees in which they will represent them, and the key issues to be debated and addressed. Successful students will learn to walk in another’s shoes and fully represent the positions of their adopted countries. 

Model United Nations builds skills for college and beyond:

  • Research and writing
  • Debate and public speaking
  • Advocacy and problem solving

This class requires regular work outside the classroom. Please be prepared to support your student in getting that work accomplished. In addition to the NHSMUN conference in New York, we will also at other MUN conferences at local universities such as UCLA and USC. Please note: Conference fees are not included in the tuition.
