  Internships
  Any PJS-related USF Service-Learning (SL) class can count towards the Internship requirement with the approval of the Program Director. In other words, a variety of internship and SL classes can count towards PJS internship requirement provided the content is PJS-related.
  Also note that students who participate in Living-Learning Communities (LLCs), such as Erasmus, Esther Madriz and Martin Baro, can fulfill some of the required courses for the minor, depending on whether the content of the courses is PJS-related.
  Davies Seminar often times fulfill a requirement for the minor as well, depending on the topic. For approval, please contact the PJS Chair
  A list of additional offerings is available from the program and on the Politics website every semester. For further details or to add the minor contact the current PJS chair, Prof. Marco Durazo mdurazo@usfca.edu.
