Global Studies students can gain practical experience through participation in the National Model United Nations program. Students also take advantage of study and work abroad, internships, summer research and local service projects.
National Model United Nations (NMUN) is an academic simulation of the United Nations. Every year more than 5,000 student delegates from around the world participate in NMUN in New York City. Randolph College’s NMUN team is an award winning delegation made up of students from many backgrounds, with diverse interests, and with complementary skills. Our successes showcase the effort and dedication of the delegation in research, writing, listening, and problem-solving. Our delegates truly represent everything that Randolph College has to offer and what the world needs. Membership on the team is highly selective and requires enrollment in the “Global Issues at United Nations” course (POL 220).
Spend the summer working closely with a professor and focused on a specific aspect of global studies. Randolph’s intensive eight-week Summer Research Program enables students to conduct research that is complemented by a thorough review of the relevant literature; live in a residence hall on campus, participate in on-campus summer events, attend special seminars with guest speakers; and share the progress and results of their research.
