This paper discusses the role of praxis in peace education at the university level. An internship program is described as an example of how a program that integrates theory and practice might be implemented within a University context. Analysis of the program points to the potential of practical programs for maximizing student learning but also highlights the problems that arise from the lack of isomorphism between the disciplinary organization of a university and the holistic and applied goals of peace education.
