Project Dragonfly’s Advanced Inquiry Program master’s degree combines web-based graduate courses through Miami University with face-to-face experiential learning and field study at Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo. Field studies are also available at Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Jacksonville, New York City, San Diego, Seattle, and St. Louis. Visit https://aip.miamioh.edu.

Created for working professionals, the AIP is a one-of-a-kind master’s program that immerses students in collaborative inquiry and action as they champion change. AIP students are able to share ideas with peers and faculty nationally, while also working directly through their local AIP collaborating site to improve their communities through shared investigation and action. Applications for Miami’s 2023 AIP cohorts are being accepted until February 28, 2023 at http://aip.miamioh.edu. Courses begin in May 2023. 

To support involvement by a broad range of professionals, Miami University discounts tuition for participants accepted to AIP graduate courses. Enrollment is open to applicants with a bachelor’s degree, regardless of academic major or profession.

Applicants may contact the AIP Coordinator at the Woodland Park Zoo, Karen Sherwood, at Karen.Sherwood@Zoo.org.
