What we look for

The PCJ program looks for high-achieving students who hold a desire to understand the roots of the world’s most urgent humanitarian problems.

While the PCJ program seeks students with diverse experiences and qualifications, this is a limited enrollment program that can only accommodate a small number of students. Admission is determined by a range of criteria, including a student’s academic background, statement of interest, a writing sample and, at a later stage in the process, a personal interview by invitation. In some cases, reference letters may also be requested.

In the past, enrollment in Peace, Conflict and Justice has proven to be extremely competitive across all these dimensions, and an applicant’s success in any one of these dimensions does not guarantee admission to the program.

To apply, you must have completed 4.0 FCE
