Computer Science

Advances in computer hardware technology have enabled a wave of software development that is transforming the way we live. The Peace Corps Master's International in Computer Science is aimed at providing teachers that will prepare students in science, mathematics, and information technology so that their students can be a part of this transformation. From app development to system administration, PCMI students also find ways to apply their advanced computer knowledge to the benefit of their Peace Corps community.

Study Locally, Learn Globally

Students in the PCMI program gain an education in advanced principles of Computer Science through one year of study on campus. Then they receive a Peace Corps placement and apply their knowledge in their host community over the next two years. Students also work closely with a faculty member to complete a project during their placement. The project might fulfill a need within the community, advance knowledge so that computer science can better serve similar communities in the future, or provide practical experience in an area of interest.
