Committee on Evolutionary Biology at the University of Chicago invites students
interested in behavior and ecology to apply to the graduate program. The Committee
is a unique interdepartmental and inter-institutional graduate program for the
study of Evolutionary Biology in its broadest sense. Resources on and off-campus
include the Institute for Mind and Biology, the Brookfield Zoo and the Field
Museum of Natural History.
For additional information about the program and the admission process, see
