The Entomology major is a general biological science program. The curriculum is designed to develop an understanding of fundamental biological concepts by studying insects. Insects offer unique opportunities to study biological systems and are model experimental animals. Many insects are either pests, or beneficial species that have great importance to the economy, environment or public health. Students may focus on specific areas of interest including agricultural entomology, insect systematics and evolution; behavior and ecology; medical entomology; and insect molecular biology, physiology and toxicology.
Students begin their study in entomology with selected insect biology courses. After completing these courses, students may enroll in courses in their particular area of interest. The Entomology Faculty encourages students to do research internships in their laboratories
