  • Required credits in this minor: 12
This minor provides a strong background in entomological principles and theory suitable for students interested in a variety of professions or advanced degree programs. Examples include programs in entomology, veterinary science, or public health; teaching biology in secondary educational institutions; or enhancing marketable skills for a variety of professional careers, such as forest health specialist, crop consultant, grounds manager, pest management specialist, agronomist, greenhouse or nursery technician, natural resource manager, or water quality specialist. Specific courses are selected based on students' educational objectives, in consultation with a minor adviser.
Program Delivery
This program is available:
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
