Entomology Minor

The Department of Entomology offers an undergraduate minor in entomology. This minor enables students to diversify their educational experience and provides a group of core courses that complement other academic programs, especially those in related agricultural disciplines such as horticulture, animal science, grain science, and agronomy, or in biology. To pursue a minor in entomology students must: (1) file a declaration of intent to pursue the minor and (2) consult an entomology advisor prior to taking the last three courses used to satisfy the minor requirements. Advisors not only ensure that requirements of the minor are met but also tailor course work to the interests, educational aims, and employment goals of the individual student.
