Students can now pursue an M.A. or M.S. in Sustainability and participate in the Master’s International Peace Corps Program, which integrates graduate study with an international development field experience.
After completing required coursework for the master’s program and receiving a Peace Corps placement, student volunteers will travel to the respective sites to begin training. Once overseas, they are given an assignment according to the needs and requests of the host country. While oversees, the student volunteer’s primary responsibility is the project and community to which they have been assigned.
