Become an MI Student
Becoming an MI student requires a combination of focus, flexibility, and dedication. As an MI student, you will spend one to two academic years on campus focusing on coursework. Upon receiving your overseas assignment and traveling to your host country, you will serve for 27 months, which includes up to three months of language, cross-cultural, and technical training. Toward the end of your training, you will receive your Peace Corps assignment. Peace Corps assignments are strategically developed by in-country staff based upon the needs and requests of the country. Before leaving for your site, you will be sworn in as a Peace Corps Volunteer.
While overseas, you will be a Peace Corps Volunteer first; your academic project will emerge from your Peace Corps service. Following service, you may be required to return to campus to complete your academic project or any other outstanding work needed for your degree. After finishing your academic work, you will have obtained a master's degree in your respective field with two years of significant international work experience.
