Program Description:

The Graduate Program in Entomology at the University of Illinois is eagerly seeking talented graduate students interested in an interdisciplinary education in entomology. Our program provides a unique and challenging approach to the study of entomology. A traditional grounding in the key elements of entomology such as insect taxonomy, physiology, genomics, pest management, and ecology is complemented and expanded by a tightly-knit community containing expertise in neurobiology, ethology, evolutionary biology, sociobiology, molecular biology, toxicology, biological control and many other diverse areas of interest. The department also has strong ties to other programs in the life sciences, including the Program in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, the Neuroscience Program, and the Department of Plant Biology. The combination of these factors allows us to offer one of the most challenging and rewarding entomology educations in the country.
