Course Description

The Northridge Model United Nations Team allows students to compete in simulations of various national and international deliberative bodies, including the United Nations General Assembly, the United Nations Security Council, the United States National Security Council, and the United States Senate. In each committee session, students represent the interests of a particular country or individual as they work together to write and pass legislation. Model United Nations provides students with a functional awareness of national and international political issues and helps develop their ability to debate contentious issues in a reasoned and courteous manner. Weekly meetings consist in training for competitions and bi-weekly simulations.

Events & Topics

The basic structure of the club will include weekly meetings with a simulation every other week. The team will also attend conferences hosted by educational institutions throughout the midwest. Meetings will be led by student leaders and Mr. Marsland.

Additional Resources

Additional Requirements

Additional Requirements: Students will be expected to spend time outside of school researching and preparing for simulations and competitions. Additionally, students are highly encouraged to attend conferences at which Northridge Model United Nations will compete.
