What is Model United Nations?
The SCC Model United Nations program offers students the opportunity to learn about global issues and international politics in an interactive team environment. What makes MUN fun and exciting is it allows students to take what they learn in the classroom and apply it to what is going on in the real world. The program creates a space where students can come together, get involved, and build lasting friendships. Students who participate in MUN also gain essential life skills. The skills we focus on are:
- Critical and creative thinking
- Decision making
- Effective communication
- Interpersonal relationship skills
- Team and rapport building
- Conflict resolution
Perhaps the biggest highlight of the SCC MUN program is our participation in local and national MUN conferences. The team travels to exciting places like Washington, D.C., and New York. While in D.C. and New York, students get the unique opportunity to meet with diplomats and practitioners in the field. We also visit the State Department and the United Nations. These are once in a lifetime experiences that draw students back to the program semester after semester.
How to Join MUN
How do you get involved with MUN at SCC? The easiest way is for students to enroll in POLT 150 - Model United Nations. This course introduces students to global issues and the ins and outs of Model UN. It is both UC and CSU transferrable. Students who are unable to enroll in POLT 150 because of scheduling conflicts may participate in the MUN club.
