The application for Fall 2022 is now closed. Decisions will be released around August 21.

The U.N. Climate Change Negotiations Practicum is a semester-long course that offers students an opportunity to study the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the climate negotiations process. Students gain hands-on experience working with clients at the heart of the negotiations, including NGOs and country delegations.

The U.N. Climate Change Negotiations Practicum will be offered in Fall 2022. The  Duke’s Bass Connections program generously supports the course. The application is open to all Duke graduate students and upper-level undergraduates and will meet for one hour and fifteen minutes once a week. Graduate students will receive 1.5 credits, and undergraduates will receive 0.5 credits.

The course will meet in Fall 2022 on Wednesdays from 5:30 – 6:45 PM.

Students admitted into the course may have the opportunity to attend one week of COP27. COP27 is scheduled for November 7 – 18, 2022 in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. While every effort will be made to allow students to attend COP, travel opportunities will be dependent upon funding limitations, travel restrictions, and COVID protocols.

Due to the large interest in the course, students were asked to submit an application for the course.
