Peace Corps LogoThe Evans School Peace Corps Master’s International (PCMI) MPA track focuses on international development of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and combines our Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree with two years of Peace Corps service.
Today’s NGO leaders need more than a vision and grassroots organizational skills. They need to know how to strategically manage and strengthen their organizations in the context of the competitive and growing NGO sector.
With our PCMI/MPA track, you will learn the analytical and managerial skills needed to run NGOs while pursuing a chosen field of specialization in international development.
Most of our PCMI students enroll full-time and complete their degrees in three and a half years. Our program includes 60 credit hours, composed of:
- 36 credits of core courses in the areas of analysis and management.
- 16 credits of electives focusing on one or more areas of specialization.
- Eight credits toward a degree project.
- Two years of overseas Peace Corps service.
