EvoS from a Distance

Evolutionary theory is remarkably easy to learn on your own and relate to any and all topics that interest you. Many people actually develop a professional-level competence on their own initiative. This website can facilitate your own evolutionary training, even if you are not associated with Binghamton University.

In addition to initiating and directing EvoS, David Sloan Wilson has written a book based on the same vision titled Evolution for Everyone: How Darwin’s Theory Can Change the Way We Think About Our Lives (Bantam Press, 2007). Reading this book is a good way to orient yourself toward the resources of this website.

This web site provides links to resources for self-study, including a tutorial and sample of books and websites.

The EvoS Seminar Series page contains webcasts of past seminars and information about the current seminars, including downloadable PDF files of articles by the speakers.

If you live near the Binghamton area, you are welcome to attend the EvoS seminars and other events listed on our events calendar. The EvoS Seminar Series features some of the most dynamic and influential scientists of our time. Once you become oriented to the evolutionary perspective, you can participate with understanding and enjoyment, along with BU students and faculty. If you live near New Paltz, New York, then check out the version of EvoS recently initiated at SUNY New Paltz by Glenn Geher and his colleagues (http://www.newpaltz.edu/evos/).

We have established an international consortium of EvoS programs, so one might be near you.

Distance Learning

The growth in online education over the past decade is rapidly transforming the landscape of higher education.  Advances in course delivery systems and online educational content has led to an exponential growth in the availability of undergraduate and graduate courses for students with a variety of backgrounds, needs and schedules.  The Evolutionary Studies program at Binghamton University is quickly adapting to this new paradigm by developing a number of online components to our program.

First and foremost, a number of EvoS Courses are available in an online, asynchronous format.  These are standard 2-4 credit college courses taught through participating faculty from university departments affiliated with the EvoS program.  Below is a partial list of online courses that have been offered through participating EvoS institutions.

A distance learning version of our popular introductory “Evolution for Everyone” is taught frequently. We are very excited about this course, which begins with David Sloan Wilson’s book and then proceeds through a number of modules that cover specific topics in detail, with active participation in research in addition to reading, writing, and discussion. The instructor is a highly qualified graduate student in evolutionary studies, working under David Sloan Wilson’s supervision. Students who complete the course receive four college credits from Binghamton University. Tuition helps to support the graduate student and the program.
