Model European Union provides undergraduate students with an opportunity to learn about and simulate the inner workings of the European Union while attending conferences around the United States. The EU is becoming an increasingly important organization in the world and Model European Union provides students an ability to learn how bills are debated and passed, and is an excellent addition to any student studying or interested in European, International, or Political Studies.
Students attend two simulations in the Spring semester. These simulations are not only a great opportunity for students to learn about and catch up on current world issues, but they allow students to develop their research, debate, and public speaking skills. Further, students will be able to form valuable connections with students and faculty from other Universities.
The time commitment involved in a general week is usually about 30 minutes – 1 hour. During the meetings when not preparing for conferences, current events related to the European Union along with general information about the European Union countries and its institutions are discussed
No prior knowledge about the European Union is required, and new members are encouraged to join in at meetings at any point in the semester.
If you are an undergraduate student and would like to to find out more about the Model EU or if you want to participate, contact Nick Katsinas.
