Peace Corps Master's International
The Master's International Program is a partnership between Michigan Tech and the Peace Corps. The Peace Corps Master’s International Program in Mitigation of Geological Natural Hazards affords students the opportunity to incorporate Peace Corps service into a Master of Science in Geology, Geological Engineering, Geophysics, or Civil Engineering.
Students enrolled in this program are often assigned to help communities and disaster agencies prepare responses to natural disasters such as earthquakes, water scarcity, floods, landslides, and volcanoes. Volunteers also address the impact of natural hazards on community development, environmental education, transportation, health, sanitation, and water quality.
