The Evolutionary Studies (EvoS) minor is an interdisciplinary program that introduces students to the core ideas of evolutionary theory and provides applications of these ideas across academic areas. The cornerstone of this program is the Evolutionary Studies Seminar, which includes lectures by external speakers with expertise on various aspects of evolutionary scholarship. EvoS courses are drawn from several disciplines, including anthropology, art history, biology, black studies, communication disorders, English, geology, history, physics, and psychology.
