Model United Nations (MUN) is fast becoming the “go to” course all over Southern California for students who want to explore World Affairs, International Relations, Speech, and Debate. Great for any student who is going into or thinking about going into MUN in high school, it is also the perfect jumping off place for careers in international business, law, and government! Students will learn about the fundamentals of the United Nations system, how to prepare and give speech, caususing, and how to research and write a “position paper”. In addition, students will have the opportunity to compete in an actual MUN conference this summer with other students in the Southern California area. Open to all students interested in world affairs, speech and debate, but especially for those who are planning to go into MUN next school year.
