PA 195G - Global Policy Simulation

In their final semester, all MGPS students take an intensive course that will involve them in role-playing exercises addressing global issues. The course integrates the various skills and substantive knowledge learned throughout the MGPS program in an applied environment. Students work closely with faculty mentors to develop leadership, staff, and decision-making skills. The course will normally include one simulation of the U.S. government's decision-making process, with students role-playing both governmental and non-governmental actors, and one simulation of an international crisis, with students role-playing leaders from various countries, international organizations, and civil society groups.
