This course is designed to facilitate student participation in National Model United Nations (NMUN) conference each spring. The NMUN is held in New York City and part of the conference takes place at the United Nations itself. Students will prepare to represent The College of Idaho at the conference. Course content will be based on the country assignment for the NMUN conference. May be repeated for credit. Only three credits of POE 199 (Model United Nations I) and POE-399 will count toward a major in the POE department.
The political economy aspects of selected domestic issues will be analyzed. These issues will include (but not be limited to) the federal budget deficit, health care, immigration, minimum wage, social security, subsidies to private firms, environmental protection, and technological development.
