Project Dragonfly accepting applications for 2016 courses

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Now accepting applications for 2016

OXFORD, Ohio (Oct. 15, 2015) – Miami University’s Project Dragonfly is accepting applications for 2016 Earth Expeditions graduate courses that offer extraordinary experiences in 15 countries throughout the world. New in 2016 are courses in Galápagos and Paraguay.


Earth Expeditions can build toward the Global Field Program (GFP), a master’s degree that combines summer field courses worldwide with web learning communities so that students can complete the GFP master’s part-time from anywhere in the United States or abroad.


Project Dragonfly also offers graduate courses and the Advanced Inquiry Program (AIP) master’s degree co-delivered by premier learning institutions in Cincinnati, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, New York, Phoenix, San Diego and Seattle. The AIP master’s takes place on-site and near AIP Master Institutions and through web-based learning communities.


Graduate tuition for all programs is greatly reduced because of support from Miami University.

Whale Camp and Authors & Artists of the Sea – Maine

In partnership with Immaculata University in Pennsylvania, the Whale Camp, on Grand Manan Island off the coast of Northern Maine, offers summer programs for students and teachers to observe and study whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals, and puffins in their natural habitats through direct observation, data collection, and hands-on experience with marine science equipment.  A second course, Authors & Artists of the Sea, is for students who enjoy expressing themselves in through art and/or creative writing.  It includes many of the elements of the Intro to Ecology course but focuses on students demonstrating their learning and experiences through their art and writing.  Students will collaborate in the production of a full-color hardbound book.  Both programs focus on the ecology of the Bay of Fundy and how the highest tides in the world produce huge quantities of plankton to establish a diverse food web.
