Ecology and evolutionary biology is the 275th most popular degree in America, with 529 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #276 Horticultural Science, and narrowly lost to #274 Electromechanical Instrumentation and Maintenance Technologies.
The degree is offered at a total of 20 colleges across the nation, and is the 382nd most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 9% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.
It is also worth noting that a little over 55.5% of colleges offering ecology and evolutionary biology are public making it a pretty accessible field.
The rocky mountains produces the most ecology and evolutionary biology graduates, largely led by University of Colorado Boulder, while it’s the Pacific-12 Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Colorado ranks highest, with particular help from University of Colorado Boulder and Colorado College.
All that being said, no individual school produces more ecology and evolutionary biology graduates than University of California-Irvine, which graduated 219 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study ecology and evolutionary biology). More students studied ecology and evolutionary biology as a percentage of total students at Colorado College than any other college.
