How long is the program and when does the Peace Corps participation take place?

Students typically start the M.A. program in September and attend two full semesters. In June or July (depending on the Peace Corps placement process), you would go into the Peace Corps. This commitment is for two years of service. Then you would return to school in September and graduate that December.
