This course covers two options. The first is an internship with an organization working on international affairs. Permission for registration is granted after the internship offer is made with a letter by the organization?s internship director. The internship has two requirements. The first is work with the organization for the equivalent of at least 14 full work days, with assessment by the internship director at the end. The second, under supervision of a faculty member, is a 20-page paper analyzing the principal issue on which the internship focused. The second option is an independent study of a selected topic developed by a group of 3?6 students and a faculty advisor, with a set of readings, written assignments, and regular meetings.
