    Certificate Programs Increasingly Popular

    Since the Center began certifying environmental educators in the 2011-12 academic year, our certification programs have expanded and become increasingly popular.  Forty-two Miami students have earned certification as environmental educators; 11 have become certified naturalists; and 13 have successfully completed certification as early childhood environmental educators.

    Combining Talents

    Andrew Hogan, a 2013 Miami graduate with a BS in Zoology, an Environmental Science Co-Major, and minor in Geology, was a volunteer at the Hefner Museum of Natural History, one of the Center's collaborators.  During his tenure at the museum, he earned certifications as an Environmental Educator and Naturalist.  To pursue a career in marine mammal husbandry and conservation education, he started an internship at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago.  His hardwork and success paid off as he accepted a fulltime position at the Brookfield Zoo as a Marine Mammal Keeper, often overlapping with the Education Department to share conservation education with visitors and to create informational signage.
