Peace Corps Prep Program

The Peace Corps Prep program at Boise State will prepare students in any major for international development fieldwork and potential Peace Corps service. To accomplish this, you’ll build four core competencies through interrelated coursework, hands-on experience, and professional development support.

The four competencies are:

  1. Training and experience in a Peace Corps work sector of your choice
  2. Foreign language skills
  3. Intercultural competence
  4. Professional and leadership development

Administered by the Center for Global Engagement, the Peace Corps Prep program is free and open to all currently enrolled Boise State students. Upon completing the program, students receive a Certificate of Completion from the Peace Corps headquarters, certifying them as a competitive applicant.

  • All current undergraduate students (freshman through seniors) are eligible to apply to participate in the Peace Corps Prep certificate program.
