Graduate Programs

We offer M.S. and Ph.D. degrees and are pleased with our standing as one of the best entomology programs in the nation. We reside in the Department of Entomology within the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS).

The disciplinary diversity of entomology is represented by student research projects that generally reflect the research specialty of their academic advisor. Many of our students receive prestigious awards and fellowships for their research, and students who graduate from our program have great success finding jobs in academia, industry, and government. We are committed to increasing diversity in our discipline and we welcome student applications from all over the world. Our graduate students have an active student organization called Frenatae, which often gives important input into departmental policies that affect student professional development and general welfare.

Again, welcome to the Department of Entomology and our graduate program. We hope you enjoy visiting us through this web site. If you are interested in applying as a new Masters or Ph.D. student in our department, we invite you to examine the links for current and prospective students under the “Graduate” pulldown menu for more information about our program. If you have any questions or would like additional information on application materials, please do not hesitate to contact me or Sarah Cowan (Entomology Graduate Program Coordinator).

Thank you for considering our program.
