      (Revised 4 November 2019)

San Diego State University (SDSU) offers a Doctoral Degree Program in Evolutionary Biology in collaboration with the University of California Riverside (UCR) Graduate Program in Evolution, Ecology and Organismal Biology. This joint program involves research training under the supervision of participating SDSU Faculty, whose members are drawn from Evolutionary Biology, Ecology, and Molecular and Cell Biology Program areas in the Department of Biology>, as well as participation from UCR Faculty in the Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology graduate program and certain outside members.

One stellar aspect of the program is an academic year of residence at UCR, enabling the student to gain invaluable expertise from courses, seminars, and lab experiences with participating UCR Faculty.
Faculty research interests at SDSU and UCR address a wide range of topics, including molecular evolution, genomics, paleontology, population biology and systematics, reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of evolutionary biology.
