Certification Programs

Would you like to know more about our natural world?  Be able to explain some of its interconnections to others?  Or have a greater understanding that allows you to develop inquiry-based lessons using environmental themes?  The Center for Environmental Education offers programs, services, and materials designed with teachers and students in mind. In partnership with the Hefner Museum of Natural History and other collaborators, we have created three unique certification programs—Early Childhood Environmental Educator, Environmental Educator, and Naturalist. For each of these programs, a course offered through Miami University's Department of Biology serves as the cornerstone for the certification. For more information, just click on the links above.
