Course Description

Immerse Education is an award-winning academic summer school that offers programs for students aged 16 to 18 in prestigious academic institutions. The goal of this program is to give academically rigorous content that expands participants' knowledge and love for their chosen field. The program also provides young varied and essential views into what it would be like to study at university through 40 hours of academic sessions over the two week.

Individual work, referred to as the "Personal Project" in this curriculum, is required. This is usually an essay or a presentation given on the last day of the program. Participants will get comments on their work, which may be included the final assessment of the participant.

The Immerse Education International Relations program is aimed to provide learners a better understanding of international relations and what it's like to study it at university. Participants are encouraged to go further into new material and build their own, well-considered thoughts and ideas based on solid study and practical experience. Participants will have a thorough awareness of not just university-level content, but also the diversity of degree programs available in disciplines relevant to international relations by the end of the program.

Example Modules

**The Middle East in International Relations: **Home to the world’s three great religions and harbouring massive quantities of oil and gas, the Middle East seems to invite geopolitical attention almost by default. Nowhere else are the failings of economic and political development so closely intertwined in producing international conflict. In this module, you will explore the key international actors in this region.

The Role of Ideas in International Relations : As new global priorities have emerged in recent decades, nation states and other global actors have increasingly demonstrated their ‘social’ side in such fields as climate change, international human rights, and international aid. This class explores the role of ideas in IR, an approach that is typically captured by the term “Constructivism”.

**The Project of a European Union: **Today, the EU has a total population of more than 500 million people. What are the strengths and weaknesses of the European Union in today’s increasingly globalised world? This module focuses on understanding the internal structure of the EU and assesses its capabilities as a political actor in internal and external affairs.

United Nations Simulation: You will be assigned a country to represent at a high-level diplomatic meeting of the UN Security Council and to write a position paper about your country’s foreign policy regarding a topical political scenario. You must then present and defend your country's position on the matter, working to form alliances in accordance with its goals.
