Masters International allows Volunteers to incorporate Peace Corps service as credit in a masters degree program in a variety of fields at more than 80 academic institutions nationwide. Prospective students apply separately to Peace Corps and to a participating graduate school. Once accepted by both, students will study on campus, usually for one year, and then spend the next two years earning academic credit while working overseas in a related Peace Corps project. Most schools provide students in this program with opportunities for research or teaching assistantships, scholarships, or tuition waivers for the credits earned while serving in the Peace Corps. Join us to learn more about the Master's International opportunities available in education and ESL at the University of Alabama - Birmingham.
