Peace Corps Masters at Michigan
Formerly, the University of Michigan School of Natural Resources and Environment (SNRE) in conjunction with the Peace Corps offered the Master's International program until the Peace Corps retired the program in 2016. Despite the retirement of the official Master’s International program the university and SNRE will continue to support students in their desire to combine Peace Corps service with earning an SNRE degree from the University of Michigan.
SNRE in collaboration with other U-M retired Master’s International programs will allow students to participate in the Peace Corps Masters at Michigan program. This program allows students to incorporate 27 months of Peace Corps service into their Master of Science in Natural Resources & Environment (MS) degree or Master’s in Landscape Architecture (MLA) degree.
Students who participate in the Peace Corps Masters at Michigan program can earn a Master of Science (MS) degree and complete Peace Corps service in four years or a Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) degree and complete Peace Corps service in five years.
Peace Corps Masters at Michigan applicants must first meet SNRE’s MS or MLA admissions qualifications. Students will then submit an application for the Peace Corps approximately 9 to 12 months prior to anticipated departure. Students then complete the various steps of the Peace Corps application process, and if accepted are invited to volunteer in their assigned term.
