Introductory Biology Credit Limitation

The maximum amount of credit that can be earned in introductory biology courses is 17 credits. Students interested in  majoring in Biology, General Biology, CMB, EEB, Microbiology, or Plant Biology must complete BIOLOGY 171, 172/174 and 173, or BIOLOGY 195 and 173, or equivalent.

The Career Center's Career Guide for Biology

Each Career Guide highlights curriculum requirements, as well as skills and abilities that may be developed and applied through each course of study. To complement the academic information, a range of interesting occupational opportunities are listed as a starting point for considering how academic experiences may translate to professional work settings. The Career Guide series represents a collaborative effort between The Career Center and numerous academic units.

Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) Advising

Students are advised by a combination of Undergraduate Biology Office staff and faculty department advisors. Advising topics include investigating majors, declaring a major, course planning, research and Honors, major releases, graduate school and career advice. Students who are interested in the EEB major or minor should consult a general advisor during the freshman year, and are strongly encouraged to meet with a department advisor early in their academic career, but no later than the second term of their sophomore year. It is not necessary to complete every prerequisite before declaring a major. To make an appointment, go to the Program in Biology website at www.lsa.umich.edu/biology/

Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) Departmental Information

EEB embraces education & research on biodiversity, including history of life, evolutionary mechanisms that generate diversity, ecological context in which life has evolved, and consequences of interactions among organisms.

University of Michigan Biological Station

It is recommended that students with majors in Biology or General Biology give serious consideration to spending a summer at a field station, especially the University of Michigan Biological Station. The training and experience provided are particularly valuable for students interested in ecology, systematics, animal behavior, and evolutionary biology and are especially relevant to the EEB major.

Society of Biology Students

The SBS is an organization of students at the University of Michigan who are interested in the Biological sciences. It is sponsored and funded jointly by the departments of Molecular, Cellular & Developmental Biology and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology.
