MSc Entomology and Insect Science
The Entomology and Insect Science degree at University of Arizona and their students integrate knowledge across the biological hierarchy from molecules to landscapes, and address questions that span the most fundamental aspects of biology,

These challenges require innovative entomological research to address conservation of biodiversity and to mitigate potential increases in negative impacts of invasive species and harm caused by insect pests and insect vectors to crops, structures, and human health.
The program thus bridges the gap between basic research, using insects as models to address general biological questions, and applied research affecting humankind more directly. The Entomology and Insect Science program offered at the University of Arizona graduates students with a particularly wide range of career opportunities.
Entomology and Insect Science degree at University of Arizona is flexible in its requirements, allowing students to design, in collaboration with faculty, programs of study tailored to individual interests and needs.
We particularly seek out creative, enthusiastic applicants who have multidisciplinary interests, such as insect ecology–plant chemistry or behavioral ecology–neurobiology, pest management–spatial ecology, epidemiology of vector-borne disease–climate science, to name a very few. We encourage students to develop cross-disciplinary connections and bring together aspects of insect biology in unconventional ways.
“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
