Members of the Society for the Study of Evolution are working with CourseSource to create a Learning Framework for the Evolution Course. Once approved by the society, a table will be available below that lists the learning goals and objectives that the Society agrees any undergraduate biological sciences major should know about Evolution by the time they graduate. 


The following people are working on developing this society-approved Evolution Learning Framework:

Rebecca Kimball (University of Florida); Julie Noor (Duke University); Jim Smith (Michigan State University); George Weiblen (University of Minnesota); 

Society for the Study of Evolution

  • The Society for the Study of Evolution was founded in March, 1946. The objectives of the Society for the Study of Evolution are the promotion of the study of organic evolution and the integration of the various fields of science concerned with evolution. The Society publishes the scientific journal Evolution and holds annual meetings in which scientific findings on evolutionary biology are presented and discussed.
