Peace Corps Prep Program

Peace Corps Prep Program

USF is a globally focused public research institution dedicated to student success. Its mission is to deliver competitive undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs to generate knowledge, foster intellectual development, and ensure student success in a global environment. The Peace Corps Prep Program aligns with these strategic goals and our efforts to provide students with high-quality global experiences—on campus and across the world.


The Peace Corps Prep (PC Prep) program will prepare you 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.

Education Abroad

It is not mandatory to study abroad, nor a requirement to complete the PC Prep Program. However, we would like to see you study abroad as it enhances your ability to know the world as a global citizen. There are other opportunities to volunteer campus-wide, locally, or nationally that will enable you to have the hands-on experiences that will enhance the completion of your PC Prep Program.
