This program provides majors with interdisciplinary perspectives on the behavior and ecology of nonhuman primates in both captive and free-living settings. It serves as background for graduate study in the behavior, ecology, or phylogeny of primates, as well as for care-giving careers with primates living in laboratories, zoos, or other captive facilities.

A double major is REQUIRED with the PBE degree. Students must complete the requirements for the PBE major as well as the requirements for a 45-plus-credit major in anthropology, biology, or psychology. Students interested in the major should contact the program office as soon as possible for further information, application forms, and assignment of an advisor. PBE majors are expected to meet with their advisor at least once a quarter.
