About

As an Evolution, Ecology and Biodiversity major at the University of California, Davis, you will learn about the diversity of life on Earth, including diversity in genes, physiology, shapes, sizes and behaviors.

Overview

You will learn about how this diversity emerged, as plants, animals, and microbes became adapted to the environment and to each other. And you will learn to predict whether populations of interacting organisms persist over time or become extinct. Theodosius Dobzhansky, a former professor at UC Davis and one of the great biologists of the 20th century, famously said that "nothing in biology makes sense except in light of evolution." As an EEB major, you will learn the fundamental concepts that unify the biological sciences and form the foundation for efforts in the conservation and protection of the earth's biodiversity. As an EEB major at UC Davis, you can choose to pursue an A.B. degree, allowing you greater flexibility to take courses in areas outside your major; or a B.S. degree, providing a more in-depth study of science topics such as biochemistry. Whichever track you choose, you'll have access to resources like the Bodega Marine Laboratory, a study center on California's central coast where you can take courses toward your degree while working alongside visiting marine biologists from around the world.

Real World Outcomes

The Evolution, Ecology and Biodiversity major at the University of California, Davis, will prepare you for a career in the life sciences, whether you are interested in conservation and restoration biology—addressing the impacts of climate change, developing plans for habitat conservation and wildlife protection, or other issues critical to maintaining a healthy planet; or health sciences—working as a medical doctor or veterinarian helping humans and non-human animals achieve healthy lives; or science education—educating students and the public on the history and diversity of life on earth and the need to conserve it; or basic research in biology—helping to expand the frontiers of knowledge by studying the evolution of organisms and their ecosystems. The list of careers for EEB graduates goes on and on. Unlike other majors in wildlife biology and environmental biology, the EEB major prepares a student for entrance into medical or veterinary school.
