Research Seminars and Student Seminars are important weekly events in Department E3B. On Tuesdays, invited researchers, Columbia faculty and graduating E3B Ph.D. students present their work. On Thursdays, E3B M.A. and Ph.D. students give brief presentations of their work in progress.
Undergrad Research, Internship & Senior Thesis
The Environmental Biology undergraduate internship program allows students to conduct original research under the supervision of the department’s extensive core, adjunct and affiliate faculty. Most often, students perform field-based research during the summer before their senior year, collecting data for their senior theses. Internships are required for undergraduate majors in Environmental Biology who have completed their junior year. Students are eligible for departmental funding.
Evolution Biology of the Human Species
Evolution Biology of the Human Species (EBHS) students can undertake a senior thesis though it is not required. EBHS thesis projects can be either library-based or original research (field/museum/lab) internship projects that students conduct either during the summer before senior year or over the course of the academic year. Students are eligible for departmental funding.
