BIOL 3020: Evolution and Ecology
Credits: 3
Examines the mechanisms of evolutionary change, with an emphasis on the genetic and evolutionary principles needed to understand the diversification of life on earth.  Covers the ecology of individuals and population dynamics.  Major topics include the genetics and ecology of natural populations, adaptation, molecular evolution and macroevolution, and the application of evolutionary and ecological concepts to conservation biology.  Required for all Biology majors. Prerequisite: Must have completed BIOL 2200 or BIOL 2020. BIOL 3020 is not repeatable.
BIOL 4920: Independent Research in Biology
Credits: 2
Independent research for qualified undergraduates under the direction of a faculty member within the Biology Department. Prerequisite: Instructor Permission
BIOL 4930: Distinguished Major Thesis Research
Credits: 2
This course is the final semester of Independent Research for participants of the Biology Distinguished Majors Program. During this semester, students will complete their laboratory investigations, ultimately presenting the sum of their work in a written thesis. Prerequisite: Instructor Permission
BIOL 8070: Colloquium in Population Biology
Credits: 2
A weekly conference arranged around a current topic. May be repeated for credit. Prerequisite: Instructor permission.
BIOL 8081: Advanced Ecology and Evolution 1
Credits: 4
This course introduces grad students to a breadth and depth of concepts and theories in modern ecology and evolutionary biology. The couse is co-taught by two BIOL faculty each fall, with different faculty rotating into the course in alternate years, providing expertise in molecular population genetics, genomics, phylogenetics, integrative biology, speciation, microevolution, life-history evolution, and mating systems.
GSCI 8500: Seminar for Life Science Graduate Students
Credits: 1–3
Seminars for graduate students across life science departments that cover integrative research topics, professional skills, and career planning and preparation.
BIOL 8559: New Course in Biology
Credits: 1–4
New course in the subject of biology.
BIOL 8999: Non-Topical Research
Credits: 1–12
For master's thesis, taken under the supervision of a thesis director.
BIOL 9998: Non-Topical Research, Preparation for Doctoral Research
Credits: 1–12
For doctoral research, taken before a dissertation director has been selected.
BIOL 9999: Non-Topical Research
Credits: 1–12
For doctoral dissertation, taken under the supervision of a dissertation director.
