AIP Overview

San Diego Zoo Global's (SDZG) Community Engagement team at the Institute for Conservation Research has joined a major national partnership to bring an innovation master's degree to Southern California. The Advanced Inquiry Program (AIP) from Miami University, Ohio, is an inquiry-driven learning experience that enables students to work directly with world-class SDZG scientists, experts and partners while completing web-based coursework through Miami University. The AIP is an exciting and affordable way to pursue your passion for conservation while earn a master’s degree and maintaining full-time work.

Students in this one-of-a-kind graduate program are part of an unprecedented national network of leading institutions committed to local, national, and global change. Project Dragonfly is based in the biology department of Miami University, a state university in Oxford, Ohio, established in 1809. Miami, listed as one of the eight original Public Ivies, has a long and distinguished record of excellence in research and teaching in science and education. Project Dragonfly reaches millions of people each year through inquiry-driven learning media, public exhibits, and graduate programs worldwide. AIP Master’s students join a growing alliance of education, environmental, and community leaders.
