Truman Partners with the Peace Corps to Offer the Master’s International Program

The Office of Graduate Studies announced a new partnership with the Peace Corps, providing the opportunity for Truman students to participate in the Master’s International program.
Students participating in the Master’s International program first gain admission to the Master of Arts in Leadership program, where they would be encouraged to specialize in education, health or environment and agriculture. Admitted students then complete their application to the Peace Corps.

Individuals in the program typically complete one year of graduate coursework before beginning Peace Corps assignments. The two-year Peace Corps appointment counts as the required nine-credit internship experience. Tuition is waived during the Peace Corps assignment.
After the assignment, students complete remaining academic requirements and graduate with a Master of Arts in Leadership degree. The program provides an opportunity to integrate international experience, cross-cultural awareness and foreign language skills with larger career goals.
For more information about the Master’s International program, an information session will take place at 4:30 p.m. Nov. 13 in Baldwin Hall Room 163.
The campus contact for the Master’s International program is Maria Di Stefano, dean of graduate studies. Additional information about Peace Corps volunteer opportunities can be found here.
