In 2019, Missouri State University launched the Peace Corps Prep program. This official partnership with the Peace Corps provides an opportunity for MSU students to highlight their work on campus and in the community.
Peace Corps Prep is available to any undergraduate at Missouri State, and students can join at any time.
As a Peace Corps Prep institution, Missouri State can suggest curriculum and provide guidance to students interested in serving internationally. Although completion of the program does not guarantee acceptance as a Peace Corps volunteer, the specialized curriculum and experience through Peace Corps Prep will greatly increase your chances.
The Peace Corps Prep Program integrates four key objectives into coursework and service-learning:
- Training and experience in a work sector
- Foreign language skills
- Intercultural competence
- Professional and leadership development
