Unique Field Research Courses

Put your learning to use internationally.

Each summer, the Faculty offers credited courses in several countries. On the ground with your professor and classmates, you attend conferences given by professionals and academics in your host country.

You visit different local organizations and actors. These three-week long courses enable you to carry out a field research project under the supervision of your professor. They offer a dynamic way to put what you have learned about research methodologies into practice in the field while allowing you to take part in a wide range of enriching activities abroad.

Model United Nations Course

Do development, international security and human rights matter to you? Once you have a few years of study under your belt, you might be interested in registering for this interdisciplinary course in which, through in-class activities, you and your classmates learn about international diplomacy, current issues and debating. At the end of the semester, the course is capped off with a trip to New York City to allow you and your delegation (fellow classmates) to take part in the international MUN (Model United Nations) competition, right at the United Nations headquarters.
