Internships with Peace and Justice Studies
Peace & Justice Studies offers internships to help students
think about the effectiveness of different strategies and their own
personal role in the social change process. Organizations promoting
nonviolence, public service and social responsibility are the "real world"
learning process in our program, and the opportunity to participate
in their activities provides a different way to learn about ideas,
interests, values, and personal growth. If you are a PJSmajor or
Certificate candidate, we require you to complete the internship
seminar with a social change or public interest organization to learn
more about citizen advocacy and social movement organizing. If you are
not currently enrolled in PJS but are still interested in the internship
and seminar, please contact Dale Bryan for approval at
