Ecology, Evolution and Behavior Option Degree Requirements

The Bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences with an Ecology, Evolution and Behavior option requires 34 credits that include Bio Sci 150, Bio Sci 152, and 26 credits in courses at or above the 300 level. Required and elective courses for this option are listed below. Additional requirements include courses in natural sciences, humanities, formal reasoning, international awareness, and research. As a Letters & Sciences student, you must also meet foreign language competencies (which may be satisfied if enough coursework was taken during high school).

It is important to understand your Letters & Science Degree Requirements because they will differ depending on whether you choose to obtain a Bachelor of Science (BS) or a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree.

Because there are many pathways to the degree depending on your particular circumstances, it is very important to meet with your Letters & Science advisor and your Biological Sciences faculty advisor at least once a semester to make sure you are on-track. Some classes may count towards more than one requirement and with early planning, you can save yourself time and money. Declare your major today to be assigned a EEB faculty advisor, who will help you prepare your four-year plan.
