Evolutionary Biology Graduate Programs
Evolutionary biology is a subfield of biology exploring the evolution, diversification, and survival of biological species on earth. Evolutionary biologists, focus their attention on the intersection of evolution, phylogenetics, population genetics, and molecular evolution. Graduate programs in evolutionary biology explore the evolutionary process and how it interacts with biological, environmental, cultural, and social factors.
Students who pursue a master’s degree in evolutionary biology strive to answer some of the bigger questions about evolution, such as: how have human beings and other life forms evolved? How can biological evolution explain the diversity of social and cultural expressions in the world? How do genetics and environmental factors affect the behavior and physicality of living entities?
