Niese accepted into

master’s degree program

OXFORD — Molly Niese of London was recently accepted into the Global Field Program (GFP) and will be taking classes toward a Master of Arts degree in Biology from Miami University through Project Dragonfly.

Because coursework for Project Dragonfly’s GFP occurs on the web and at field sites internationally, students live throughout the country and world. As a first-year GFP student, Niese will complete web-based courses exploring biodiversity, conservation science and community and the relationship of biology with technology. In Summer 2018, Niese will also travel to Belize to study coral reefs, manatees, howler monkeys, jaguars and other wildlife while learning the methods communities are using to sustain them.

Niese works as a high school science teacher at Madison-Plains High School.

Miami University’s Project Dragonfly reaches millions of people each year through inquiry-driven learning media, public exhibits and graduate programs worldwide. Project Dragonfly is based in the department of biology at Miami University, a state university in Oxford. Miami was established in 1809 and is listed as one of the eight original Public Ivies.
