Graduate Courses

Key Courses

Evolution and Human Affairs (BIOL 570)

4 credits. Offered each fall. Recommended introduction to graduate evolutionary studies.

This course introduces evolutionary theory and its wide-ranging implications for human affairs to graduate students from all departments. It is taught once a week (Tuesday) in the evening to maximize the opportunity for participation. The first few weeks will be devoted to the basic principles of evolution and why they provide a theoretical framework for all biological and human-related subjects. Then students will explore their own areas of interest and will learn about evolutionary research taking place on campus through guest lectures by EvoS faculty, advanced BU graduate students, and advanced graduate students from other institutions . By the end of the course, students will have a good idea of how evolutionary theory can contribute to their own professional development (depth) and how it also provides a common language for transdisciplinary interactions (breadth).

Current Topics in EvoS (BIOL 680S)

2 credits. Offered each semester in association with the EvoS seminar series. Required at least twice for the graduate certificate.

This course is built upon the EvoS seminar series, which brings distinguished speakers to campus at roughly biweekly intervals. The course consists of reading one or more articles in preparation for each speaker, writing a short response to the article(s), attending the seminar, and meeting with each speaker after the seminar for an extended discussion over food. This is a superb way to engage in interdisciplinary interactions with other members of EvoS and with some of the most distinguished scientists and scholars of our day. The course can be taken multiple times.
