Course content

Sussex has long been a centre of excellence for evolutionary biology, counting the world-renowned biologist John Maynard Smith among its founding members. By studying with us, you’ll develop into a researcher capable of contributing to the grand challenges of antibiotic resistance, cancer and environmental change.

This research-focused degree is based on our strengths in evolutionary biology, from the evolution of sociality, symbioses and sexual conflict to the process and effect of mutations. You’ll study how and why organisms are the way they are, and how this affects fundamental parts of our lives.
