Applied Minor

Peace Corps Prep Applied Minor

Peace Corps Prep is both an applied minor program at Earlham and a certificate program administered by the Peace Corps. By completing the requirements explained in this guide, you can earn an applied minor designation that will appear on your academic transcript, and earn a certificate of completion from the Peace Corps and additional credentials to include in any application you may submit for a volunteer position or other international development work.

To accomplish this, as you work through your Earlham graduation requirements, you’ll build four core competencies through interrelated coursework, hands-on experience, and professional development support. These four competencies are the following:

  • Training and experience in a work sector
  • Foreign language skills
  • Intercultural competence
  • Professional and leadership development
