FAMA - Peace Corps Coverdell
Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi is a Coverdell Fellows Partner University! Returning Peace Corps volunteers who have completed their assignment have an opportunity to continue their education and earn a Master’s degree in the Fisheries and Mariculture (FAMA) Program at TAMU-CC.
The Fisheries and Mariculture (FAMA) Program of Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi hosted Peace Corp Master’s International (MI) students from 2010 to 2016, when Peace Corps retired the MI program. During that time four students (article) completed their combined Peace Corps assignment and Master’s degree. FAMA is proud to continue our relationship with the Peace Corps by being the first Texas university to be named a Coverdell Fellows Partner University.
