Six (6) hours of credit will be granted for a professional paper based on the student’s Peace Corps service, which is the final requirement for completion of the M.F. The School of Forestry has many international connections which can be of benefit to PCMI students. These include:

  • two faculty who are Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (with service in Bolivia and Swaziland), three faculty who are natives of other countries (Eritrea, South Korea and Taiwan), and numerous faculty with international research experience.
  • a growing number of international forestry courses, including field courses taught in Honduras, Ghana, Nicaragua and Panama
  • a number of graduate students who are either from other countries or who are conducting their research overseas
  • A wide network of connections with individuals doing work overseas or with agencies involved in international natural resource management.



This 33-hour program prepares you for a career as a multi-resource forest manager, in contrast to a career in research. It is appropriate for students who desire advanced training in Forestry, but not a research focus. The program of study involves a minimum of 30 semester hours of coursework plus 3 hours of credit for the professional paper, plus any remedial coursework required as part of the admission, and is designed by the student in consultation with the student's major professor whose interests complement those of the student. The student's program of study includes core courses, plus a selection of courses tailored to the student's personal interests.


To qualify for the Peace Corps Master’s International program, students must meet both the regular requirements for admission into the Northern Arizona University School of Forestry’s M.F. degree program and the requirements established by the Peace Corps for volunteer service. Prospective students are required to submit GRE scores; official transcripts; a statement of research interests; and 3 letters of recommendation. Students cannot be admitted until a faculty member agrees to serve as the major professor.
