Program Description:

SIT Study Abroad Switzerland: International Studies and Multilateral Diplomacy

NOTE: SIT will make every effort to maintain its programs as described. To respond to emergent situations, like COVID-19, SIT may have to modify programs.

Examine the evolving role of multilateral diplomacy in international relations and responses to security challenges from the center of Geneva.

WHY STUDY INTERNATIONAL STUDIES IN SWITZERLAND?

A global hub for diplomacy, Geneva is home to more than a dozen major international organizations such as the Red Cross, World Health Organization, United Nations agencies, and the World Trade Organization. While delving into high-level multilateral diplomacy, you’ll enjoy the gastronomic and cultural riches of this city and bohemian districts like Carouge, a Mediterranean-style hamlet modeled after Nice. You’ll also visit key intergovernmental organizations in Paris, like the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, and you’ll go to the European Union headquarters in Brussels to get acquainted with issues involving the EU.
Please visit the SIT Study Abroad website for details on the program highlights and details of coursework, educational excursions, and housing.
