|USF Model UN Experience|
Students at USF can earn as many as four credits in political science by participating in Model UN or Model League conferences. Each conference attempts to provide a working model of the United Nations or the League of Arab States, including their Committees, officers, rules and issues. To prepare for a conference, students will first choose a country to represent. Besides learning as much as they can about this country and its role in the world, they will also learn how to function as members of UN/League Committees -- how to write resolutions, how to address their colleagues, and how to negotiate with other delegates. In addition, they will study the issues that are typically addressed in UN/League Committees. The ultimate goal for students is to depict as accurately as possible the country they are representing -- its goals, policies, and participation in world affairs.
