Welcome to the Department of Entomology at Texas A&M University!

We currently are one of the top entomology departments in the United States. We offer three Entomology degrees (B.S, M.S. and Ph.D.) and a Bachelors of Science degree in Forensic and Investigative Sciences (FIVS) that is nationally accredited by the Forensic Science Education Programs Accreditation Commission (FEPAC) of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences.
