Welcome to the Department of Entomology at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas!
The Department of Entomology offers outstanding undergraduate and graduate academic programs. We offer three Entomology degrees (B.S, M.S. and Ph.D.) and BS degree in Forensic and Investigative Sciences (FIVS). The Department is one of the top degree-granting entomology departments in the United States. We have outstanding students, staff and faculty, excellent facilities, and exceptionally diverse programs that impact positively the lives of people throughout Texas, the region and the world.
The Department has 32 faculty located in College Station who are the classroom teachers and 5 AgriLife Extension faculty and 6 AgriLife Research faculty who are located at one of the 15 Research and Extension Centers giving us a total of 43 faculty members statewide.
We also have numerous IPM Agents and Extension Program Specialists who are the “boots on the ground” and work directly with growers and urban clientele to solve problems with insects. These professional entomologists are a powerful force that can be tapped to educate our students and the public about insects.
The cultural background of the faculty now represents every continent on the globe which has led to a global expansion of teaching, research, and extension programs. We have study abroad programs operating in 3 countries and all of our undergraduates complete a research experience or an internship prior to graduation to gain understanding through these high impact learning experiences.
