This just in from our friends at Miami University in Ohio …
Applications are being accepted for 2011 summer/fall graduate field courses and a master’s program that offer international conservation studies in 12 countries throughout Africa, Asia, Australia and the Americas. New in 2011 are courses in Australia and Guyana.
Created in 2004 by Miami University’s Project Dragonfly and the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, Earth Expeditions graduate courses and now the Global Field Program (GFP) master’s degree bring together graduate students, scientists, educators and community leaders at critical conservation field sites worldwide. In addition to Australia and Guyana, sites for 2011 include the Amazon, Baja, Belize, Borneo, Costa Rica, Kenya, Mongolia, Namibia, Thailand and Trinidad.
Tuition for seven graduate credits and all basic in-country expenses are covered in the $1,250 course costs. Accepted students are responsible for airfare.
Earth Expeditions and the GFP, which can be completed part-time from anywhere in the United States or abroad, are open to educators and other professionals from all disciplines and settings, regardless of grade level or academic focus. For information and to apply, please visit Earth Expeditions or Global Field Program. Interested applicants in the Cincinnati, Cleveland, Chicago and Seattle regions may be interested in Dragonfly’s additional master’s degrees, including the community-based Advanced Inquiry Program, co-delivered with premier learning institutions in select U.S. cities.
