The Department of Biology offers a Graduate Certificate in Conservation Biology. This Certificate integrates specialized graduate coursework with the culminating experience the student completes as part of a Masters degree, to prepare students for careers in conservation biology with federal, state, tribal, and local agencies and non-profit organizations. This Certificate provides a value-added component to a graduate degree at Miami University, specifically an M.S. in Biology, an M.A. or M.S. in Botany; Ph.D. in Biology, Botany or Ecology, Evolution, & Environmental Biology; or M.En. in environmental science. By choosing the appropriate coursework, a student can earn the Conservation Certificate simultaneously with earning a graduate degree.
