Environmental Policy Minor 

The department participates in a program designed to give graduate students an opportunity to develop an interdisciplinary specialization in the environmental policy. See Environmental Policy Minor  offered by the Department of Political Science.

Interdisciplinary Graduate Minor in Computational Science (IGMCS)

The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology participates in the interdisciplinary graduate minor in computational science (IGMCS) program. Any student pursuing a master’s or PhD with a major in ecology and evolutionary biology can receive a minor in computational science by completing the appropriate IGMCS requirements. For additional information, see the description of the Interdisciplinary Graduate Minor in Computational Science  listed under Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science or visit the IGMCS website. The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology also contributes courses to the IGMCS program curriculum.
