About the Entomology Program

If you think all entomologists wear pith helmets and carry nets, you are only partly right. Entomologists can be found in the jungles as well as the arctic examining insect biodiversity, but they can also be found analyzing DNA sequences, conducting forensic studies, developing agricultural policies, and interfacing with a multitude of other biological problems.

Additional Policy

All Entomology applicants (M.S. and Ph.D.) must contact faculty members in the department before and during the admissions process. All students are admitted directly into a faculty member's lab. Additionally, we do not accept new graduate students into the program unless financial support for the student is currently in the hands of a faculty member, or is assured by the time a student begins, or a student brings independent funding and has contacted a faculty member who agrees to advise.
