Graduate Courses

Core Curriculum

Students must complete a minimum of 5 core courses during their first six academic quarters.
Two of those courses are required graduate level courses that all students
must take: Quantitative Methods (E207) and Writing Grant Proposals (E204).

In addition students must take one course each in the areas of Physiology, Ecology, and Evolution.
Although all three courses can be taken at the graduate level, one of the three courses may be taken as an upper division undergraduate course in a field in which students have not taken any previous undergraduate courses.

If a student wishes to request an exception (an exemption or substitution), s/he must submit a written request to the Graduate Advisor. Once approval has been given, the student must submit a General Petition found at http://www.grad.uci.edu/forms/index.html to Graduate Division.

Departmental seminar series
Most quarters there is a Departmental Seminar Series (Eco Evo 201), where seminars are presented by research scientists from UCI as well as other universities.
All graduate students are strongly encouraged to attend these seminars.

Advanced graduate courses
The department offers advanced graduate seminar courses (eg: 210, 221, 223, 235, 285)
in evolution, ecology, statistics and comparative physiology.

University teaching
If a student serves as a teaching assistant for a class, they must enroll
in Eco Evo 399 (University Teaching) for 4 units, in each quarter that they TA.
