Advanced Inquiry Program

A Master’s degree gained through the lens of inquiry…that leads to meaningful conservation outcomes.

The Advanced Inquiry Program (AIP) is an inquiry-driven learning experience that enables students to complete coursework on the web with Miami instructors while working in-person with WCS staff through exciting experiential learning and field study opportunities - at the Bronx Zoo, other WCS facilities, or at sites across the greater NYC area.
