The Evolution and Human Adaptation Program supports work by faculty and students at the University of Michigan in the area of evolution and human behavior, including work relevant to Darwinian medicine.

The program organizes a series of seminars throughout the academic year, and provides contacts for students to get advice, support and sometimes research money to pursue work in this area.

The program does not offer a degree, so prospective students should apply through specific departments. The departments of Psychology, Philosophy, Anthropology, Economics, Political Science, Psychiatry and Biology are the most involved in the program.
