Michigan Tech partnered with the US Peace Corps for 20 years to offer Peace Corps Master’s International Programs (PCMI) across campus. PCMI students combined a master’s degree with Peace Corps service. From 2005 until Peace Corps retired the program in 2016, Michigan Tech was the nation's largest Master's International campus. Our students have served in 52 countries around the world.
While Michigan Tech can no longer admit new students to the program, students now enrolled in the program are able to finish their studies and service as planned with no interruptions. More information about Peace Corps' decision to retire Master's International is available on the Peace Corps website.
Michigan Tech is continuing to partner with Peace Corps in two other programs:
- Peace Corps Prep for undergraduates interested in Peace Corps and community-engaged learning.
- Peace Corps Coverdell Fellows programs for Returned Peace Corps Volunteer graduate students to work and do research in underserved US communities.
