This course is taught by a self-paced, personalized system of instruction. Students interact, according to their own schedules, with undergraduate TA's. The student takes both a written and an oral quiz for each of 12 units which is graded and evaluated by the TA. If mastery is attained, the student may proceed to the next unit. Grades are assigned according to the number of units successfully completed and performance on the midterm and final examinations. This system is designed to take into consideration different rates of individual learning as well as to eliminate competition among students. TA's are available approximately 75-80 hours/week.

This lecture/discussion course covers the fundamentals of evolutionary biology through an examination of its conceptual framework, classical studies, and current research topics. It includes a historical survey of evolutionary thought from classical times to the present and critical examination of such topics as natural selection, adaptation, population genetics, speciation, phylogenetics, macroevolution, evolution of development, and molecular evolution. Weekly discussions will focus on primary literature. Writing assignments and examinations will be given to assess students' knowledge of course material.
