About

The M.S. in Entomology at Harper Adams University provides students with specialized training and offers vocational training in the area of applied entomology or insect conservation.

Overview

The Entomology program offered by Harper Adams University is intended to provide a detailed understanding of basic and applied entomology and the issues associated with, on the one hand, their ecology and conservation and, on the other, the control of harmful species worldwide. 

Our program focuses on conservation and agriculture. There is currently a shortage of expertise in this important topic, which is a key element in the effort to ensure global food security and the understanding of biodiversity. By successfully completing this course you will develop a range of abilities that will prepare for an interesting and fulfilling career in an area with considerable opportunities.

Graduates with M.S. in Entomology from Harper Adams University will be able to:

  • identify insects to at least family level, determine their key characteristics, and critically evaluate the role of insects in managed and natural ecosystems. 
  • assess and exploit technology to solve insect-related problems.
  • disseminate issues and ideas relating to insect control and conservation to a range of audiences using various methods of communication.
  • evaluate and interpret data and draw relevant conclusions from existing entomological studies.

Career

Students holding an MSc in Entomology have gone on to work for research institutes such as Rothamsted Research, FERA (the Food and Environment Research Agency), the James Hutton Institute, commercial biological control companies, the agrochemical industry and as agronomists and ecological consultants.

They have also gained employment with conservation bodies such as Natural England, Scottish Natural Heritage or overseas. A number of graduates have worked as forensic entomologists.
