Entomology & Wildlife Ecology PhD, MS

Life Sciences

Social & Behavioral Sciences


The Department offers programs leading to the Master of Science (MS) in Entomology, MS in Wildlife Ecology, and the Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD) 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 MS degree programs prepare students for pursuit of the PhD. While it is possible to go directly to the PhD program, the Department Faculty prefers that students complete the MS degree before being admitted or reclassified into the doctoral degree program in Entomology and Wildlife Ecology.
