The UCLA Center for Behavior, Evolution, and Culture (BEC) unites scholars exploring the connections among evolution, culture, the mind, and society.

BEC provides a framework to facilitate research and training on the interaction among natural selection, cultural transmission, social relations, and psychology.

This web site provides an overview of who we are and what we do. For additional information about the Center, and to learn how you can get involved, please contact the Director, Clark Barrett.
