Clemson Entomology offers programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, preparing students for a variety of careers in basic and applied insect science.
If you are interested in becoming a professional entomologist, an undergraduate degree in biological sciences with an emphasis or minor in entomology is a great place to start. With your undergraduate degree from Clemson, which will likely include undergraduate research or other hands-on opportunities, you can follow your B.S. with an advanced degree in Entomology from Clemson or some other institute of higher learning.
Research careers in entomology are exciting and adventurous. Jobs with universities, state and federal government agencies, the military and private businesses and industry often include a chance to travel and explore many exotic regions of the world. Professional entomologists play a significant role in the search for new knowledge about insects in areas as diverse as human and animal health, biodiversity, biotechnology, urban environments, forensics, environmental quality, manufacturing, agriculture, and industry. Our Master’s and Doctoral degree programs can start you along this path.
