Entomology and Wildlife Ecology: Ph.D., M.S.

 

The Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology offers programs leading to the master of science in entomology, M.S. in wildlife ecology and the doctor of philosophy in entomology and wildlife ecology. Graduate students in these fields couple a focus on insects or vertebrates with a broad knowledge of other related fields of biology, especially ecology. The M.S. degree programs prepare students for pursuit of the Ph.D. While it is possible to go directly to the Ph.D. program, the department faculty prefers that students complete the M.S. before being admitted or reclassified into the doctoral degree program in entomology and wildlife ecology.

Program Concentrations:

  • Entomology
  • Wildlife Ecology

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.
