Entomological studies at the University of Wyoming focus on biodiversity, integrated pest management, statistical analysis and modeling, and more. Understanding the biology, ecology and classification of insects is crucial to understanding the widespread effects insects have on agriculture, human health and the functioning of ecosystems. Entomology is the study of insects as well as their relatives, the spiders, ticks and mites. Insects represent three-quarters of all the Earth’s species, and are found in virtually all ecosystems and ecological habitats, from forests and deserts to rangelands, and from soils to streams and tree canopies. Understanding the biology, ecology and classification of insects is crucial to understanding the widespread effects insects have on agriculture, human health and the functioning of ecosystems. Entomology graduate students in the Department of Ecosystem Science & Management study a variety of scientific issues related to insects across the globe, including exotic countries like Ecuador and Uzbekistan. Past graduates have received major awards in Entomology, such as the Snodgras and Comstock Awards given by the Entomological Society of America. The M.S. program is geared toward teaching graduate students the tools necessary to conduct robust scientific research. This program requires 30 credit hours (at least 12 from Entomology) approved by the student's graduate advisory committee and an approved research plan.
