Restart your search

With an individualized program (IP) in the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment, you have the unique opportunity to customize your education and tailor it to a set of special interests.

IP - Entomology

The curriculum of this program offers both a strong, diverse core of entomological courses and the flexibility to make each student's experience unique through individualized research experiences, and selection of specialized coursework from other disciplines (agriculture sciences, biology, and chemisty). Because of the small size of this program, students will have many opportunities to develop one-on-one interactions with faculty and graduate students.  All students conduct independent research under a faculty mentor.  Most students have part-time employment opportunities in laboratories that allow their entomological skills to grow.
