Justice Brandeis Semester expands its offerings

Last summer, Justice Brandeis Semester (JBS) programs exposed students to areas of study like healthcare and nutrition, mobile apps, and American politics through experiential learning. In summer 2014, Brandeis will offer at least 10 different JBS programs to students at Brandeis and other universities.  

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 field-based research, creative work, community-engaged learning or internships allow students to gain real-world experience, build close relationships with professors and small groups of students, and acquire skills that will make them stand apart from their peers after Brandeis.
