Graduate students in several disciplines – agronomy, animal science, biochemistry, biological sciences, genetics, veterinary diagnostic medicine and pathobiology, horticulture, and plant pathology – are conducting research on topics that may include insects and plant protection/pest management. The Entomology program is offered by Kansas State University.


Entomology students from Kansas State University may wish to demonstrate proficiency in entomology, making them more suitable for certain jobs. In order to strengthen their educational programs and the quality of graduate education without detracting from their existing graduate degree programs, an entomology graduate certificate program has been developed through the Department of Entomology.

Educational Objective

Its objectives are to prepare graduates for careers related to entomology or plant protection/pest management, encourage interdisciplinary educational experiences in entomology and enhance the educational experiences of participating graduate students.

  • Insect Pest Diagnosis
  • Insecticides: Properties and Laws
  • Aquatic Entomology
  • Insect Ecology
  • Insect Taxonomy
