Peace Corps Master's International Program
Grad school or Peace Corps...why not do both?
The Peace Corps Master's International program combines graduate study with Peace Corps service overseas. Prospective students apply simultaneously to the Peace Corps and the graduate program(s) of their choice. Typically, students complete one year of graduate school and then serve 27 months in the Peace Corps, after which they return to the university to complete any remaining degree requirements. More than 50 universities - nine of which offer graduate degrees in forestry - currently partner with the program.
Since 1987, the Master's International program has offered participants a unique opportunity to combine graduate study with significant international service, connecting theory and practice and contributing to the Peace Corps' first goal: to help the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women. For more information about this education adventure of a lifetime, please visit www.peacecorps.gov/masters.
The Peace Corps is celebrating a 47-year legacy of service at home and abroad. Currently there are 8,000 Volunteers abroad, a 37-year high for Volunteers in the field. Since 1961, more than 190,000 Volunteers have helped promote a better understanding between Americans and the people of the 139 countries where Volunteers have served. Peace Corps Volunteers must be U.S. citizens and at least 18 years of age. For more information about other Peace Corps opportunities, please visit www.peacecorps.gov.
