University Majors

University of California, Santa Barbara
Ecology and Evolution B.S.

Ecology and evolutionary biology are highly integrative disciplines that draw together essentially all of the topics in modern biology under a single framework of principles and theory. Ecologists and evolutionary biologists explain past and present patterns of abundance, distribution, and diversity of organisms. In order to do so, ecologists and evolutionary biologists must be familiar with current knowledge across a broad range of specialized fields, from molecular and population genetics to the mechanisms and history of plate tectonics. The ecology and evolution major introduces students to the processes that result in the diversity and dynamics of ecological communities, and the evolutionary principles that unify the biological sciences. Transfer students are admitted to pre-major status until all prerequisites are satisfied.
