We're looking forward to having new students, staff and facilities join us for the 2016-17 year!
We offer M.S. and Ph.D. degrees and we are pleased with our standing as one of the best entomology programs in the nation.

Insects are awesome on TED Talks too! If you've not yet heard Marla's 2013 TED Talk held in Scotland, check it out. Her presentation on "Why bees are disappearing" has now been viewed more than 2 million times.
The Department of Entomology is home to many talented faculty members. Together, their research and expertise span continents, and they’re making big discoveries about some of planet’s smallest inhabitants. Please visit the Faculty and Staff page for more information on individual areas of study.
