The Peace Corps Prep Program


Montana State University is proud to offer The Peace Corps Prep Certificate Program to undergraduate students. The Peace Corps Prep Program creates a framework for students across campus to build four competencies through the integration of coursework, hands-on experience and professional/leadership development. The four competencies are: 1) training and experience in a work sector, 2) foreign language skills, 3) intercultural competence, and 4) professional and leadership development. Students pursuing the Prep Program Certificate focus on one of the following areas for the first competency: education, health, environment, agriculture, youth in development, and community economic development.


With strategic planning, MSU students can easily earn the Prep Certificate along with their major. Upon completion of the program, students receive a certificate from the Peace Corps and a competitive edge when applying for Peace Corps service as well as for other global engagement opportunities and career paths.
