Insect diversity is a measure of ecosystem health. Insect pests seriously limit agricultural and forest productivity, and actions taken to control insects can affect many components of the environment. Insects exhibit numerous behavioural, morphological and physiological adaptations to their environment and offer many examples of evolution at work. This master degree in Entomology is available at the University of Manitoba. 

Entomology became a separate Department within the Faculty of Agriculture in 1920. The first M.Sc. student graduated in 1951, and the first Ph.D. in 1962. The Department's main focus is now undergraduate and graduate teaching, and research. Undergraduate teaching is within the framework of degrees or diplomas of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences. About half of the graduate work and research activity in the Department is in applied areas. Additionally, all academic staff do active research, and supervise graduate work, on fundamental entomological topics.
