Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

Studying in outdoor lab for ecology.

Know the science. Make a difference.

Study the interactions between organisms and their environment and the evolutionary processes that produce and modify the diversity of life on earth. You'll be prepared for careers in research, conservation and restoration, management with state and federal agencies or parks, education and outreach, environmental protection and policy, or advanced graduate education.

Come to the shores of Lake Superior to explore effective management of ecological systems. Observe, collect, record, and analyze evolutionary biological data in the lab and in the field. Dive deep into meaningful coursework, immediate research opportunities, and 4,609 acres of research forest. Expand your knowledge of our planet’s interconnected ecosystems with studies of ecosystem sustainability, evolutionary dynamics, ecosystem function, human health, and the management and restoration of natural resources. As a Michigan Tech graduate, you'll use your comprehensive understanding of ecological and evolutionary patterns and processes to solve environmental problems.
