CUNY BA Workshop on Internships in International Affairs
Current global challenges call for an interdisciplinary perspective. An approach, which would merge academic training, hands-on experience, multiculturalism, and international exposure. For current students, volunteering or internships in international organizations are a step in that direction. Come to this session to hear students speak about their experiences and how their internships contributed to their academic and professional development. Introductory remarks by UN Resident Correspondent and CBS News Foreign Affairs Analyst, Professor Pamela Falk, Hunter College. Special guest, CUNY Baccalaureate. student Norhan Basuni, will share her stories from the Tahrir Square where she witnessed the revolution while studying abroad in Egypt.
Among our speakers are: James Aldworth, a graduate student from CCNY, who did the United Nations Headquarters Internship Programme at the Academic Impact office, Rachel McCroy (CUNY BA) who has been volunteering for the past two years at the Foundation for Post Conflict Development, and Maisha Lopa (CUNY BA/Macaulay) who just started an internship at the United Nations Office of Disarmament Affairs. Offered by CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies.
