Since the advent of the first interdisciplinary Evolutionary Studies (EvoS) programs at Binghamton University and the State University of New York at New Paltz, students across disciplines have been afforded the opportunity to learn foundational evolutionary principles. They have had the opportunity to explore how evolutionary ideas apply across the curriculum, as well as to issues of everyday life. This book is designed to be an exposé of the EvoS concept, including basic features of an EvoS curriculum, the goals of such a curriculum, and real-world applications of evolution-based ideas found in an EvoS curriculum. Contextualized in the complexities of modern higher education, this book includes chapters discussing the place of EvoS within the broader landscape of higher education as well as controversies in the field. This chapter introduces the coverage and organization of the book by providing a lay of the land.
