Describe a favorite experience while attending graduate school at MU.
There are many family friendly events on campus and especially with our entomology society. Memories of racing after insects of all kinds through many fields and streams with my kids and the C.V, Riley club are not likely to be forgotten anytime soon!
Within the Entomology graduate program area, a student can select training from a wide range of courses and research programs to prepare for a career in any of the many areas of professional entomology, including research, teaching, industry and extension work. Current research programs emphasize the following areas: ecology, pest management, insect behavior, biochemistry, morphology, molecular biology, physiology and systematics, as well as aquatic, forest, horticultural and urban entomology, chemical ecology, biological and chemical control, host-plant interactions, and integrated pest management.
