The Ecology and Evolutionary Biology graduate program at UCSC reflects the remarkable local and global diversity of species and environments studied by our faculty and students. The vision of the EEB graduate program is to provide a nurturing, creative, and intellectual environment conducive to the development of world-class scientists. Our graduate program encourages close working relations between students and faculty in an informal atmosphere conducive to rapid learning and professional growth. Interdisciplinary collaborations with oceanographers, geologists, toxicologists, economists and others enable students to explore the conceptual connections between related fields as they acquire mastery in their areas of specialization.
