Insects: Examine how they hinder and help.
When your field of study encompasses 800,000 biologically diverse insect species, the
challenges are endless. This program, the state’s only graduate program in entomology,
provides a deep understanding of insects and their impact on agriculture, human health,
and the environment.
As a graduate student, you will study advanced topics related to insect systems,
biodiversity, ecology, physiology and pest management. You will acquire the skills
to develop integrated pest management systems, breed pest-resistant plants, tackle
emerging pollination issues, and battle insect-borne diseases here and abroad.
Students in this program lead independent research, with opportunities to conduct
experiments across Idaho’s diverse ecological conditions and cropping systems.
