Option Entomology Graduate Option  

   Print Version Print

This option is offered within the following major(s):
Crop Science - College of Agricultural Sciences
Horticulture - College of Agricultural Sciences



The Entomology (ENT) option at Oregon State University embodies the Land Grant mission of integrated research, teaching, and extension in the context of understanding the basic biology of insects and, with this knowledge, then working with insects in natural and/or managed environments. The discipline of entomology at Oregon State University covers behavior, ecology, evolution, physiology, systematics, molecular biology, chemical ecology, plant-insect interactions, pollination by honey bees and native bees, biological control, integrated pest management, and insecticide toxicology. Oregon State Entomology addresses insect-related issues in aquatic and terrestrial systems in natural, agricultural, forested, and urban environments. Entomologists collaborate with plant scientists, physiologists, pathologists, soil scientists, geneticists, molecular biologists, and experts in other fields.

Students in the Entomology option will conduct thesis research related to insects under the supervision of an entomologist associated with the graduate faculty in Crops or Horticulture, and take courses that provide knowledge and understanding about insects. After completing their degree, students will have gained fundamental knowledge in entomology that may be applied in agricultural, aquatic, forested, natural, and urban environments.
