One of the most effective ways of landing a job is to have an internship first. At your internship, you gain critical experience, build important connections, and see if you are a good fit for the organization. Peace and Conflict Studies undergraduate and graduates have the option to do internships with organizations in the field. Master's students can choose to do an internship to fulfill their capstone requirement (instead of a thesis or project). We have relationships with over 50 organizations, ranging from the local to the global. Here are some of the recent internships our students have done:
- Lowell High School, Peer Mediation
