World-class insect expertise: Graduate studies in entomology

The UC Davis entomology program is ranked among the best in the world, offering graduate students research and learning opportunities unmatched in higher education. Highlighted by internationally-recognized faculty, state-of-the-art research facilities and global research projects, the grad program focuses on how basic and applied aspects of entomology can solve problems in biology, agriculture and the environment.

The wide-ranging specialties for study include agricultural entomology, apiculture and bee biology, behavior, biological control, environmental toxicology, insect physiology and biochemistry, host-plant resistance, parasitology, medical entomology, molecular biology, sociobiology, systematics and others.

Our entomology program is yet another example of how UC Davis is advancing knowledge and making life on this planet better for people and nature.

Students interested in graduate studies in entomology should apply now. The deadline is Jan. 2 for priority consideration; the final deadline is April 1, 2012.
