Does it matter where I live?

Yes. All coursework occurs on the web; however, students also engage in experiential learning onsite at affiliated AIP Master Institutions, which is an essential and definitive feature of the program.  Currently, affiliated AIP Master Institutions are located in Chicago (Chicago Zoological Society/Brookfield Zoo); Cincinnati (Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden); Cleveland (Cleveland Metroparks Zoo); Denver (Denver Zoo); Phoenix (Phoenix Zoo); San Diego (San Diego Zoo Global); New York (Wildlife Conservation Society/Bronx Zoo); Seattle (Woodland Park Zoo); and St. Louis (Missouri Botanical Garden).  Please note that Phoenix Zoo is currently serving AIP students but is not accepting applications for 2017 or beyond.
