Entomology and nematology are biological sciences dealing with insects, mites, ticks, spiders and nematodes. The Department of Entomology and Nematology offers the major. Faculty within the department cover areas in systematics, ecology, medically significant arthropods, social insects, insect management, physiology, behavior, evolution and natural ecosystem cycles. The department has a long tradition of sending students to medical, veterinary and dental school. Graduate school prospects are also high and employment options using entomology are versatile. This specialization prepares students for professional careers in the ecotourism industry and is appropriate for employment with nature preserves, nature-based theme parks and in natural history education or nature-based recreation. The program emphasizes the nature interpretation component of ecotourism, while including a core of recreation and tourism, management, economics and human ecology courses. A nature-based internship also is required.
