Prospective Students

Thank you for your interest in the Insitute for Behavioral Genetics; IBG offers the opportunity to complete a certificate in Behavioral Genetics to students who are in Ph.D. programs affiliated with our faculty fellows. The major goal of the training program is to train scientists in the study of genetic contributions to individual differences in behavior. This is accomplished by requiring students to obtain strong training in a primary academic discipline, by instructing them in the interdisciplinary content of behavioral genetics, and by providing an atmosphere in which close interactions among scholars with different perspectives may be established. Each of the links to the side provide more details about affiliated programs, IBG certificate program application and admission, faculty mentors, coursework requirements, and other training requirements.

The University of Colorado is an equal opportunity/nondiscrimination institution and minority applicants are especially encouraged to apply. We also welcome applications from students with disabilities and the Institute is partnered with the University of Colorado at Boulder Disability Services to encourage and support such students. Please contact Disability Services at if you have questions about support services at the University of Colorado.
