About JBS


A Justice Brandeis Semester (JBS) is an engaging, immersive academic program in which small groups of students explore a thematic topic through inquiry-based courses linked to real-world experiential opportunities.

JBS internships, field-based research, creative work or community-engaged learning allow students to:

  • gain real-world experience through experiential learning.
  • build close relationships with professors and small groups of students.
  • acquire skills that will make them stand apart from their peers after Brandeis.
