Degree Programs

The Center for Evolution and Medicine (CEM) is developing coursework in evolutionary medicine in conjunction with the School for Human Evolution & Social Change, and the School for Life Sciences. These courses will eventually be offered in conjunction with a master's degree.

Our currently developed courses include:

  • Introduction to Evolutionary Medicine
  • Evolutionary Medicine
  • Evolutionary Medicine and Global Health

Check the course catalog by semester to see which are available by term. 

Ph.D. candidates working with ASU faculty on projects related to evolution, health, and disease are always welcome as a part of the CEM. No specialized Ph.D. track in evolution and medicine is yet available, but the full resources of the CEM are available to help students and faculty develop related projects.
