Program Description:

Miami University's Project Dragonfly offers a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree in Biological Sciences and a Master of Arts (MA) degree in Biology through the Global Field Program (GFP). The GFP is a Miami MA/MAT degree program that combines field work at conservation and education hotspots globally with collaborative work in web-based learning communities. Dragonfly, in partnership with leading institutions and communities worldwide, offers Earth Expeditions field courses. Earth Expeditions combine collaborative projects via web learning communities with summer field experiences in conservation and education hotspots in the Amazon, Australia, Baja, Belize, Borneo, Costa Rica, Guyana, Hawai’i, India, Kenya, Mongolia, Namibia and Thailand. EE courses can be taken as individual courses or can be combined as part of the GFP. Applicants elect to pursue either a MAT or MA degree from Miami University. MA and MAT students go through the GFP together. Note: The MAT program does not confer a teaching license. Applicants with no education background should apply for the MA, not the MAT degree. See our website for more detail.


Miami University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
