NMSU is proud to partner with the United States Peace Corps to offer the PC Prep Program. The Peace Corps Prep (PC Prep) program is a non-NMSU certificate awarded by the U.S. Peace Corps itself. Getting this certificate requires completion of the International Studies minor at NMSU, plus some additional requirements. Obtaining this certificate enhances NMSU students’ opportunities to better prepare them to make a difference in the lives of people both internationally and at home. Being in the southern border area of New Mexico, we are confronted everyday with issues of health, poverty, education and the environment as they relate to the United States, Mexico and other Latin American counties. PC Prep provides a cross-discipline program, increasing cross-cultural awareness to undergraduates regardless of their future goals.
