Anne McCarthy Student ReflectionAIP site: Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden

Miami University graduate Anne McCarthy M.A. ‘20 of Milford, Ohio, reflects on her master’s journey in Project Dragonfly‘s Advanced Inquiry Program (AIP).

“Getting your master's is a lot of hard work but it is so fulfilling. I did not seek this degree to further my career. It just fed my soul.“

McCarthy earned a Master of Arts (M.A.) in the biological sciences from Miami University through the AIP while working as a development liaison for a local hospital in northern Kentucky. As an AIP student, McCarthy took Miami web-based classes while participating in unique learning experiences on the grounds of Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden and in natural areas around Ohio.
