The Practicum in International Affairs provides students the opportunity to complete a discrete consulting engagement for an international client organization. Student teams undertake a Terms of Reference, conduct research, data collection and analysis, and produce a report or other final product. Finally, the team makes a formal presentation to the client and The New School community. To the extent possible, the Practicum simulates a professional consultancy, emphasizing deadlines and professional standards for work products, and the importance of being responsive to clients and working closely with teammates. PIA II: Project Implementation is centered around completing a semester-long project assigned by an international organization client. It is taken in the final semester, so you should have 33 credits prior to enrolling. PIA II cannot be taken without fulfilling prerequisite PIA I. Class day and time are determined by the faculty member. Some projects will be more popular, and selection will be first-come-first-served. Projects will also be canceled if too few students enroll. All project teams will be formed and finalized by mid-August. After reading all project descriptions, you should decide on the project of most interest to you, and enroll in that section.
Open to Graduate students.
