International Organization & United Nations Studies (IO/UNS)

International Organization & United Nations Studies Curriculum

The specialization contains two focus areas: the International Organization (IO) focus area for students wishing to study regional international organizations such as the EU, AU or Arab League; and the United Nations Studies (UNS) focus area for students wishing to focus specifically on the UN. Both focus areas require that students complete the core course, International Organizations (INAF U6139). The IO focus area will require two electives on global governance, while the UNS focus area will require two UN-relative electives in the areas of human rights, security or development.
