Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Designated Emphasis

Introduction

Requirements

To receive a designated emphasis in ecology and evolutionary biology (EEB), graduate students must complete the following requirements in addition to the degree requirements for the doctorate in their home department:

Committee Composition and Departmental Approvals

1. Identify a designated faculty adviser from among the faculty of the EEB department, who commits to serve on the qualifying examination committee and on the Ph.D. dissertation reading committee.

2. Once a designated faculty adviser has been identified, file intent to complete the designated emphasis in EEB with the EEB department graduate program coordinator.

Course Requirements

Students are required to complete at least 20 credits of EEB coursework. Courses taken to fulfill program requirements within the home department will not count toward the designated emphasis program's required coursework.
