Peace Corps Prep

If you join Peace Corps Prep, you will take preparatory classes and participate in a cross-cultural, service-oriented experience to build intercultural competency, develop an understanding of critical global issues, and forge professional partnerships. Specifically, you will take classes to gain skills in foreign language and intercultural competence. Through focused coursework, a hands-on immersion experience, and an honors project, you will also specialize in an area of international development and Peace Corps such as education, health, or the environment.

When you complete the Peace Corps Prep program, you will be ready to serve in the U.S. Peace Corps or a similar organization. You will also have laid a solid foundation for graduate school and professional work in international development and other service-oriented careers.

Peace Corps Prep is an official partnership between Michigan Tech and the U.S. Peace Corps. While completion of Peace Corps Prep does not guarantee acceptance into the Peace Corps, we have worked closely with the Peace Corps to create a program that aligns with the skills and training that Peace Corps is looking for.
