Graduate Academic Programs
Departmental Graduate Programs
Our program is flexible and tailored to suit individual student interest. Through course work, research and seminars, students are expected to become proficient in three of six areas: (1) Ecology, (2) Evolution (3) Behavior (4) Genetics (5) Physiology and (6) Conservation.
A traditional grounding in the key elements of entomology such as insect taxonomy, physiology, genomics, pest management, and ecology is complemented and expanded by a tightly knit community containing expertise in neurobiology, ethology, evolutionary biology, sociobiology, molecular biology, toxicology, biological control and many other diverse areas of interest.
Our graduate training program offers a diverse yet individually tailored and focused opportunity for students to develop expert-level skills in current research methodologies, critical thinking and ancillary professional attributes essential to a successful and satisfying career in plant research at the molecular, physiological and/or ecological levels.
