Clemson students can earn a master’s degree in agricultural education, applied economics and statistics, or forestry resources through the program.

“We are pleased to begin our partnership with Clemson University, a university with a proud tradition of volunteerism,” said Peace Corps Director Ron Tschetter.

Clemson program director William Molnar said, “Our Master’s International Program is a cornerstone graduate program that will enhance our connections and reputation in the international arena. This program gives internationally minded students the academic and practical experience to meet the global challenges of today and tomorrow.”
