Evolutionary Studies Certificate

EvoS (for Evolutionary Studies) is a campus-wide program at Binghamton University whose mission is to advance the study of evolution in all of its manifestations, including the human sciences and humanities in addition to the biological sciences. Graduate students from all academic units can participate in EvoS, resulting in a certificate that can be earned without adding an undue course burden to their existing requirements. Other benefits of EvoS at the graduate level include research opportunities, teaching opportunities, and an opportunity to interact with other graduate students across departments. Graduate students are a critical component of the EvoS program, not only as students but as teachers and colleagues, and are therefore encouraged to contribute ideas to the design and operation of the program.

Application Deadline

The certificate application deadline is rolling.

Admission Requirements*

Applicants must submit the Graduate School's required admission materials:

  • Online graduate degree application and application fee
  • Official transcript(s) from each college/university at which you earned a degree (Current Binghamton University graduate students or individuals also applying to a master's or doctoral program at Binghamton University do not need to submit transcripts with their certificate application.)

Important note: Funding is not available to non-degree students completing certificate programs. Certificate students are not automatically admitted to master's or doctoral programs. They must meet the admissions requirements of those degree programs and be accepted. Students may concurrently apply for a certificate and a Binghamton University graduate degree program. However, a student cannot be awarded a certificate twice, nor can a student apply work for one certificate to a different certificate. Learn more about graduate certificate programs.

Applicant Qualifications

Applicants must be enrolled in a graduate degree program at Binghamton University.
