For Miami University Students

Current Miami University graduate students and select undergraduates can apply by January 28 each year to take Project Dragonfly‘s Earth Expeditions graduate courses, which combine learning in a web classroom with travel to conservation hotspots in Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Americas. Students in Earth Expeditions courses interact with leading educators, community leaders, and conservationists from around the world while also making a difference in their home communities.

Housed at Miami University, Project Dragonfly is an education reform initiative with graduate courses, master’s degree programs in biology, learning media, public exhibits, and community partnerships across the U.S. and globally.

Miami undergraduate students who have earned 64 or more credit hours and have a GPA of 3.0 or above may request permission from the Miami University Graduate School to enroll in graduate-level classes. Once approval is granted, an undergraduate can apply to Earth Expeditions.

Miami graduate students may apply to Earth Expeditions for graduate credit.

In addition to Earth Expeditions, Project Dragonfly has additional Dragonfly graduate courses that Miami undergrad and grad students can take for graduate credit. These include conservation-focused online courses with experiential learning at major zoological and botanical institutions across the country in cities such as Cincinnati, Cleveland, Chicago, and more. Courses are available in summer, fall, and spring terms.

Dragonfly‘s field and online courses are open to Miami students, regardless of major or degree, with an interest in benefitting human and ecological communities through topics such as wildlife conservation and environmental education. These courses can be especially valuable for Miami zoology and biology students.
