East Carolina University's Department of Political Science provides three avenues through which students may pursue their interest in international relations: our academic programs, the East Carolina International Relations Organization (ECIRO) and the Eastern Carolina High School Model United Nations.
East Carolina University
Model United Nations
Academically, the Department offers two courses that are directly related to the UN, POLS 3293 International Organizations and POLS 3013 Decision Making in the United Nations. Students in POLS 3293 learn about the goals, structure and processes of the UN and other international organizations. In POLS 3013, participants will have an opportunity to engage in simulations of UN councils and committees and to oversee the Eastern Carolina High School Model UN. POLS 3013 is offered in the Fall semester every year.
See the Political Science Department home page for other offerings in international relations and comparative politics, and the International Studies home page for information about the minor in international studies.
