Internship Program

Apply your knowledge

A requirement of the MAPJ program is to undertake a 10-week internship placement over the summer that allows you to put theory into practice. Students find internships with changemaking organizations that allow them to explore their particular professional interests. Students find placements locally, domestically, and internationally. The internship is an opportunity to hone in on the right career trajectory.

Internship Seminar

You will take seminars before and after your internship, in which you will have the opportunity to analyze your peacebuilding approaches, discuss connections between peacebuilding theories and practices, and evaluate the overall impact of your internship on your career trajectory.
