Graduate Minor

The Graduate Minor in Entomology is available to any student enrolled in either an M.S. or Ph.D. degree in any department other than entomology at The Ohio State University. Entomology is an excellent choice for a graduate minor because it can provide potential job opportunities for graduates as specialists in Entomology and also because insects serve as excellent model systems for fundamental research. This graduate minor will be of particular interest to students enrolled in graduate programs in Horticulture and Crop Science, Plant Pathology, the School of Environment and Natural Resources, Animal Sciences, the medical and veterinary schools, and the Environmental Science Graduate Program (ESGP).  

Requirements: All students seeking a Graduate Minor in Entomology will take a minimum of 10 credit hours of coursework in Entomology including one required course, and the remainder from 7-8 credit hours from elective courses.
