Make a meaningful impact through entomology
Home to the first entomology department in the country, Cornell University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences offers innumerable opportunities at the undergraduate and graduate levels to study the basic and applied aspects of entomology within the framework of a broad education in the biological and environmental sciences.
The entomology major serves as excellent preparation for future endeavors, and alumni have gone on to medical school, veterinary school, graduate school, and work in government, agriculture and integrated pest management (IPM). Whether your interest is systematics, genomics, medical entomology, IPM or physiology, we have opportunities for you!
Why entomology at Cornell?
Although Cornell is a large institution, entomology courses are typically small (15-35 students). This creates a highly personal environment that allows students and faculty to get to know each other well, and facilitates opportunities for all students to excel. Not only do students get hands-on experience in lab courses using Cornell’s vast array of specimens and the latest scientific equipment, but numerous opportunities exist for research with faculty members during the academic year and summer.
