Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Program
Welcome to UTEP’s Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) Program. To learn more about us, please see our welcome letter from the chair of the program, Dr. Vanessa Lougheed, and our mission statement.
The Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Program at UTEP is housed within the Biological Sciences department at UTEP and consists of both an undergraduate and graduate degree program. To learn more about these programs, please see our pages for the EEB Ph.D. program and the EEB Bachelor of Science (B.S) program.
The bachelor's degree program was established in spring of 2020. This new degree will benefit students preparing for careers or advanced degrees in such fields as ecology, evolutionary biology, systematics, zoology, plant science, conservation biology, or wildlife management.
The doctoral program was established in the summer of 2011. We are always seeking highly motivated students ready to engage their abilities and complete a Ph.D. in this important field of biological science. A similarly motivated and engaged doctoral program faculty awaits your application to our program.
Our faculty have a diverse range of interests within ecological and evolutionary science. Please see our faculty page for more information and links to faculty web pages.
If you are a graduate or undergraduate student, please also see the Resources page that contains links to useful forms and documents, undergraduate and graduate research and internship opportunities, and job boards.
