Undergraduates can learn about entomology through diverse opportunities in the Department. While entomology is not available as a major, a number of specializations in the Biological Sciences Major and Environmental Science and Policy Program provide coursework and internships in entomology. In addition, undergraduates have many opportunities to pursue research in different labs in the Department, where they can actively participate in the development of new information on the biology, ecology and management of insects.

The College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences no longer has the taxon-based specializations of botany, entomology, or zoology. Undergraduates interested in studying entomology are encouraged to enroll in the General Biology specialization, which allows them to use the broadest range of entomology courses as a major part of their upper level program.
ongoing research projects in Entomology faculty labs offers undergraduate students the opportunity to become acquainted with various types of research or to perform mentored research in systematics, morphology, molecular biology, physiology, toxicology, genetics, pathology, ecology, pest management, and pesticide policy. A number of internships and scholarships provide opportunities for students to work and be rewarded for entomological research.
