Why choose JBS this summer?
Are you interested in gaining work and research experience this summer while earning 12 academic credits in Sociology? These two JBS programs may be for you!
Students say the JBS experience is unlike any they’ve found in a standard classroom setting. It offers an intensive, hands-on engagement in the field with first-hand exposure to issues related to social justice. It’s a great way to earn 12 credits while getting work and research experience over the summer
PLEASE NOTE: The final application deadline for all JBS programs is March 15. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, so sign up now!
