Major Advisers. Students transferring to UC Davis from another institution and majoring in Evolution, Ecology and Biodiversity must consult an adviser immediately upon matriculation so that their transfer credits can be applied to the major requirements. All new students in the major should contact the Biology Academic Success Center for adviser assignment. Substitutions of courses not on the above list for major requirements are arranged through the adviser.
Advising Center for the major is located at the Biology Academic Success Center (BASC); 1023 Sciences Laboratory Building; 530-752-0410; http://basc.ucdavis.edu/. Pre-professional students should visit the Health Professions Advising office at http://hpa.ucdavis.edu/ for information on pre-health requirements and to subscribe to their email list.
Teaching Credential Subject Representative. Students planning for a teaching career should consult the School of Education in regard to preparation for certification; see the Teaching Credential/M.A. Program.
