About the major

As an ecology, evolution and behavior (EEB) major, you’ll learn about plant and animal communities and ecosystems, how they interact and relate to each other, how they evolved over time and might change in the future, and how they behave and adapt.

EEB students explore a wide range and topics and issues from how specific genes affect the aging process; how climate change affects plants in tropical rain forests; how frogs are affected by the “cocktail party problem,” where there’s a constant wall of noise; and how outside forces influence mating preferences in animals.

If you’re the least bit curious about the past, present and future of plants and animals, then consider majoring in ecology, evolution and behavior. We have some of the most talented faculty members you’ll find anywhere and research opportunities for undergraduates abound.
