Our undergraduate degree programs are designed to be customizable while providing a solid foundation in the biological sciences with an emphasis on organismal biology, ecology, and evolutionary biology.
Students may elect to complete one of the following undergraduate BIOS or EBIO degree plans:
Graduates of these programs are highly competitive for admission into graduate and professional schools (e.g., medical school), as well as for positions in government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and environmental consulting. Our curriculum is designed to promote critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills. Graduating EEB students have experience working in a collaborative setting to solve challenging problems using analytical tools. Furthermore, our graduates understand both the practice and the culture of science and the relationship between science and society..
Undergraduate courses include numerous opportunities for theoretical and applied learning, both locally and around the world. Undergraduates are important contributors to research in EEB laboratories, and many publish work conducted during their undergraduate experience in top journals. Students are encouraged to get involved in research at any stage in their degree program
The EEB faculty has a deep commitment to students. We share a love of the natural world that inspires our teaching. Students with questions about any of our degree programs, and those wishing to declare a major in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, should contact one of our undergraduate major advisors.
