  • Practical experience
    The Department of Plant and Environmental Protection Sciences, or PEPS, brings together experts in several fields (plant pathology, entomology, weed science, integrated pest management, to name a few) that are dedicated to protecting both crops and the environment. The department's purpose is to develop and disseminate environmentally friendly plant protection principles and practices for the tropics and subtropics, protect the structural integrity of buildings from destructive pests, provide strong programs in fundamental science and provide a quality education in related areas
  • Course description
    The MS degree program is offered under either Plan A (thesis) or Plan B (non-thesis). A total of 30 credit hours is required for each degree option. An advisory committee composed of at least three members of the graduate faculty provides guidance to the student.

    The program provides an education in general knowledge of entomology, including basic principles of insect identification, biology, and control and prepares the student for employment in private industry, government agencies, and research institutions.

    Expected student learning outcomes are:
    1. Acquire and demonstrate competency/skills as a biologist
    2. Acquire and demonstrate entomological knowledge necessary for professional success
    3. Acquire and demonstrate communication and literacy skills
