Our successful students are focused, persevering and committed to helping people and the environment. They share a strong interest in at least one facet of entomology and an attraction to teaching, research and/or outreach. They’ve earned bachelor’s degrees in entomology, biology, fisheries, ecology and many other areas – including English. Along the way, they’ve developed analytical, critical thinking, computer, and communication (written and verbal) skills.
Tailor your study plan to your specific professional goals. During your first semester, we’ll consult with you and your adviser before assembling either a three-member (master's) or four-member (doctorate) graduate committee, which may include faculty members from both the University of Idaho and Washington State University. This committee first assesses your background, interests and goals, then defines a study plan.
