Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Department

The Ecology, Evolution, and Organismal Biology Major is 1 of 3 majors offered in the Biology Department. The Ecology, Evolution, and Organismal Biology Major is designed for, but not limited to students who have an interest in organisms as a fundamental unit; their anatomies, evolutionary histories, and diversities; how they interact with each other, and respond to habitat changes. In conjunction with foundational knowledge of biological principles, graduates of this major should be better prepared for careers that involve field work, species identifications, and applying ecological principles to issues of conservation, restoration, and biotic assessment. 

A minor is required. Biology minors may not be earned with this major.

A minimum of 12 credits with at least one (1) course from each of the categories: Ecology, Evolution, Organismal. At least one (1) course must contain a field experience as denoted by “F” from any category.

Additional Option:


Only one (1) credit from BIOL 494 or BIOL 495 may be applied to required elective credits.
