Model United Nations
Pine Manor College sends a delegation representing a designated country to the National Model United Nations Conference in New York City. Each participant researches issues to be discussed in a committee of the UN General Assembly or another UN organization. Students join delegates from approximately 150 colleges to simulate the UN diplomatic process. Students receive academic credit for participation in the Model UN. For more information, please contact Professor William Vogele.
Delegation fees and hotel expenses of Model UN participants are paid by the College, but students are expected to pay for their own meals and travel expenses.
Pine Manor College encourages students to internationalize their education by spending a year, a semester, or a summer studying abroad. Study abroad provides students with cultural enrichment, personal development, and intellectual challenge.
Students may enroll in directly in a foreign university or participate in a program sponsored by PMC, another American college, or a foreign study consortium.
In recent years, students have take part in Semester at Sea, Richmond College in London, and a variety of programs in Mexico, Australia, and Central Europe. Additional sites in Asia, Africa, and South America offer students a wealth of languages, cultures, and new academic goals. The College sponsors a study tour of England during alternate summer sessions.
