Description:
The Department of Entomology is pleased to announce the availability of a new
minor in Entomology. Information about the minor, the advising sheet, and
examples of courses for specific majors and interests can be found here:
http://entomology.umd.edu/entomology-minor.html.

Entomology represents the study of insects at all levels of biological
hierarchy, from genes to ecosystems, as well as the ecological and
evolutionary processes that sustain them. Beneficial insects, like
pollinators, natural enemies, and decomposers play important roles in
maintaining sustainable conditions through their contribution to ecosystem
services. In contrast, injurious insects cause harm to our health, our
agriculture, and our structures, requiring their management in appropriate
ways for the protection of society without harming biodiversity. Many
disciplines use insects as model systems for study, including genetics, cell
biology, evolution, population ecology, conservation biology, engineering,
and education.

The goal of the Entomology minor is to prepare students with an interest in
insects as models for future research and education, as well as to expose
students to the broader impacts of insects in nature and society.
