There are a multitude of opportunities for students at Messiah wanting to prepare themselves for a vocation of peacemaking, conflict resolution, and reconciliation. We hope every PACS major or minor will participate in our student organization Peace Fellowship. The Peace Fellowship core team plans a variety of events each semester including discussions, lectures, films, weekend trips, and a campus newsletter.
Practical experience is required for each PACS major either through an internship or practicum. A semester abroad is strongly encouraged for PACS majors since it enables students to see the world from multiple perspectives. Similarly, a semester at the Philadelphia Campus is also highly recommended for PACS majors.
Here on campus, programs of interest to PACS majors include the Agape Center, the Collaboratory, Reconciliation House, and the SALT residential program in Harrisburg.
