Enroll in the summer JBS program and then continue your work through a 13-week full-time internship (COSI 89aj/293aj) and an independent study course (COSI 98aj/210aj).
The internship course will require students in the Extended JBS Program to keep a weekly blog on their internship and to comment on the blogs of their classmates. They will also have three essays to write about their role in their workgroup, their groups' role in the company and the company's role in the market.
The independent study will be a taught as a journal club where students will work with the instructor to select a sequence of journal articles to read and then will take turns presenting the main results in those articles and writing a final paper building on those readings.
Rising seniors planning on attending graduate school may want to use the Extended JBS Program to work on their senior research by taking their Research Internship (COSI 89aj) in a faculty lab where they can work on a potentially publishable research project. Students in this option would be enrolled in COSI 89aj and 98aj and would not enroll in other courses at Brandeis while working full-time on their research in the fall.
Courses one, two and three will run in the summer and courses four and five will run in the fall.
