Entomology Graduate Program

The Entomology Graduate Program, administered through the Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences, offers two research degrees. The MS and PhD degrees require students to conduct research leading to the writing of a thesis (MS) or dissertation (PhD). Students also may pursue a non-thesis MS degree in Plant and Environmental Science with an emphasis in integrated pest management and sustainable agriculture.

The Entomology faculty are known for their commitment to teaching and working with students. They are at the forefront of research in their areas and are national and international leaders in their fields in three primary research areas — Agricultural & Applied Ecology, Urban & Medical Entomology, and Biodiversity, Systematics & Evolution.
