Entomology


In the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences .


Course Offerings  

The Entomology curriculum provides students with a basic background in biological and physical sciences, with a special emphasis on the study of insects. The majority of majors pursue graduate studies in entomology or related sciences upon completion of the B.S. degree. Alternatively, students may immediately begin careers in various aspects of basic or applied insect biology, including integrated pest management, insect pathology, environmental assessment, medical or veterinary entomology, insect toxicology, apiculture, insect systematics, or insect ecology. Because of the diversity of career options, the major includes flexibility among the core requirements and electives that can be selected by students in consultation with their advisors.
