Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Minor

The Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Minor is available starting Fall 2023

The EBIO minor provides students with the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills in ecological and evolutionary sciences and organismal biology. Our objective is to prepare Tulane graduates to be environmentally aware citizens with knowledge of global environmental challenges and their connections to cultural, social, and economic factors.  
Please note this minor cannot be combined with the EEBI or ENVB major
