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 dale.bryan@tufts.edu.
