Master's International, MS

The Master’s International (MI) is a joint program between the Peace Corps and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi (A&M-Corpus Christi) that offers students a unique learning experience in which they earn academic credit for international service.

To participate in the MI program, students first apply and are accepted to A&M-Corpus Christi (in the Fisheries and Mariculture program), and then they apply to the Peace Corps. The student (with supervision from a graduate advisory committee) develops an appropriate project, and completes initial course work at A&M-Corpus Christi. Then the student is assigned to a community through the Peace Corps, travels to the placement site, and conducts the project according to the needs and requests of the host country.

Students in the Master’s International program work toward the Fisheries and Mariculture, MS  degree, and the MI program is described more fully under that program.
