Graduate Programs

We offer two master of science (M.S.) degree programs in Entomology and Wildlife Ecology and a Ph.D. degree in Entomology and Wildlife Ecology with two concentrations. Most of our students are supported on graduate research assistantships. Our faculty members are hands-on, working closely with the students to ensure their success.  

Two graduate areas exist in the department, namely:

1. M.S. degree programs in Entomology and in Wildlife Ecology

2. Ph.D. degree program in Entomology and Wildlife Ecology

  • Entomology Concentration (Ph.D.)
  • Wildlife Ecology Concentration (Ph.D.)

The first step in the application process is to find a faculty mentor and advisor. For a full list, visit the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology faculty page. After one of our faculty members has agreed to mentor you, we encourage you to apply. If you have any specific questions, please contact Deborah Delaney.

Application process update:  Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), the program of ENWC is waiving the GRE requirement for our graduate program.  If you wish to apply without a GRE score, please enter a future GRE exam date into the application.  It need not be a legitimate exam date.  Entering a future exam date causes the system to finish your application and send it on to our review committee where it will receive full consideration.
