The major in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology is a traditional program of study in the discipline. The major prepares students for a wide variety of careers as well as further, professional education. It offers the widest variety of options for study at the undergraduate level and later at the graduate or professional level. Students interested in pursuing advanced study in ecology and evolutionary biology, human medicine, veterinary medicine or dentistry will especially want to complete this major.
The major in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology is one of two majors offered by the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department to undergraduate students. The Department also offers a major in Environmental Biology.
EBIO 5970, 5971 - Capstone Research Seminars
Pre-requisites: Senior Standing and major in EEBI, ENVB, or ENSB.
Students attend departmental research seminars and meet separately to discuss them as contemporary topics in ecology and evolutionary biology. Career development is also considered in the course. Completion of EBIO 5970 or 5971 satisfies the capstone requirement in the major. Students may, however, earn credit in both courses.
Only one course from this list may count toward the major in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEBI). These courses may not be used to satisfy requirements of the major in Environmental Biology (ENVB).
