The Graduate Faculty

The Program

Students in Entomology represent a range of experiences and interests, with varied backgrounds from biology, chemistry, zoology, entomology, meteorology, ecology and botany programs to name a few. You will find an exceptional faculty that offer an unequaled range of research expertise and breadth within our focus areas. The strength of our research resides in four main program themes: Chemical Ecology, Ecological Applications, Disease Biology and Ecology and Pollinator Biology and Ecology. Many opportunities are available for study abroad experiences from which students return with a new perspective that enhances their studies and research. The Entomology Department participates in a number of dual-degree programs including Comparative and International Education (CI ED), Human Dimensions of Natural Resources and the Environment (HDNRE), International Agriculture and Development (INTAD) and Operations Research (OR). Additional specialization is available to students conducting research with insects in intercollege degree programs in ecology, genetics and plant biology.

Admission Requirements

Scores from the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) are required for admission. Requirements listed here are in addition to general Graduate School requirements stated in the GENERAL INFORMATION section of the Graduate Bulletin.

For admission a student should have a strong background in biological sciences. Courses in chemistry through organic, physics, mathematics through calculus, statistics, and computer application are recommended.

The language of instruction at Penn State is English. International applicants must take and submit scores for the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or the IELTS (International English Language Testing System), with the exceptions noted below. The minimum acceptable score for the TOEFL is 550 for the paper-based test, 213 for the computer-based test, or a total score of 80 with a 19 on the speaking section for the internet-based test. Applicants with iBT speaking scores between 15 and 18 may be considered for provisional admission, which requires an institutional test of English proficiency upon first enrollment and, if necessary, remedial course work. The minimum composite score for the IELTS is 6.5.

Master's Degree Requirements

The Master of Science degree in Entomology is an intermediate degree leading toward the development of special knowledge in entomology. It provides training for prospective doctoral candidates. A minimum of 30 credits (400 and 500 level) is required, with at least 20 credits earned in residence. At least 18 credits in the 500 and 600 series must be included in the program. A minimum of 12 credits in coursework (400 and 500) must be completed in the major program.

The program requires all students to take ENT 432, ENT 518, ENT 522, ENT 530 (2 credits), 3 credits of 400-to 500-level ENT course, and 3 credits of statistics (i.e., STAT 501, 502, 541, AG 400, or equivalent). Additional courses may be selected by the student in consultation with his/her graduate committee. Each Master's student is expected to serve as a teaching assistant for 3 credits. Each student must present the results of thesis research at a departmental seminar, and the student may register for 1 credit of ENT 590 that semester. A thesis equivalent to 6 credits (ENT 600) is required. A final oral examination covering the general field of entomology, with emphasis in the student's area of specialization, is required by the department. This is to be administered by the student's committee. A favorable vote of a two-thirds majority is necessary for passing.

Committees for master's degree candidates should be formed during the first semester, and are suggested jointly by the student and advisor, with approval by the Department Head. Masters committees have a minimum of three members. One of these should be from another degree program, particularly if the student plans to minor in that area. Adjunct faculty members cannot constitute a majority of the committee. The student and committee shall meet early in the process to plan the student’s program and approve a thesis project.

The Thesis Guide is available electronically, visit www.etd.psu.edu.

Doctoral Degree Requirements

The degree of doctor of philosophy signifies high scholastic achievement and demonstrated capability in independent research. Although there is no formal credit requirement at the Ph.D. level, five academic years of full time graduate work beyond the bachelor's degree are normally required. Some of the work may be completed off campus or on a part-time basis, but between the time of acceptance as a candidate and completing the degree requirements the student must spend two academic sessions in residence within a twelve-month period. The program requires all students to take ENT 432, ENT 518, ENT 522, ENT 530 (4 credits) and 3 credits of 400- or 500-level ENT course. Other course requirements are dependent on the student's program of study. Each Ph.D. student is expected to serve as a teaching assistant for 6 credits. The results of the dissertation research must be presented at a departmental seminar. In addition, students must take and pass a comprehensive and final oral examination. Students commencing a doctoral program may have a provisional committee appointed as soon as the advisor is selected. Students are not formally admitted to the doctoral candidacy until they have passed a candidacy examination. A favorable vote by two-thirds of the Candidacy Committee members is necessary for acceptance of a candidate.

The official doctoral committee is approved by the Department Head and is appointed by the Graduate Dean through the office of Graduate Enrollment Services after the student has passed the candidacy exam. Doctoral committees for students in the entomology program include at least three members from the department, at least one member from a related field outside Entomology, and a total of no fewer than four members; five members are recommended. Typically, committee members are chosen in consultation with the advisor. If the student has a formal minor, a representative of the minor field must be on the committee.

The student and committee should meet early in the degree process to plan the student's Ph.D. program and approve a thesis project. A student may change advisor or committee members without prejudice. The doctoral committee guides and monitors the student’s progress, administers the comprehensive and final oral examinations, and evaluates the dissertation.

A candidate for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy is required to demonstrate high-level competence in the use of the English language, including reading, writing, and speaking, as part of the language and communication requirements for the Ph.D. Entomology assesses and works to improve competence of both domestic and international students. Assessments to evaluate competency prior to the candidacy exam include pieces of original writing required as part of ENT 522 (Professional Development). Oral communication competency is evaluated during the candidacy examination. Students needing assistance are directed to appropriate remedial activities. (International students should note that passage of the minimal TOEFL or IELTS requirement does not demonstrate the level of competence expected of a Ph.D. from Penn State.)

There is no foreign language requirement for the Ph.D. degree. However, depending on the nature of the thesis research and with the advice and consent of the Doctoral Committee, competency in a foreign language may be required as a part of the doctoral studies of certain students.

Student Aid

Graduate assistantships available to students in this program and other forms of student aid are described in the STUDENT AID section of the Graduate Bulletin.

Graduate courses carry numbers from 500 to 599 and 800 to 899. Advanced undergraduate courses numbered between 400 and 499 may be used to meet some graduate degree requirements when taken by graduate students. Courses below the 400 level may not. A graduate student may register for or audit these courses in order to make up deficiencies or to fill in gaps in previous education but not to meet requirements for an advanced degree.

Dual-Title Graduate Degree in Entomology (ENT) and International Agriculture and Development (INTAD)

Graduate students with research and educational interests in international education may apply to the Entomology/INTAD Dual-Title Degree Program. The goal of the dual-title degree Entomology and INTAD graduate program is to enable graduate students from Entomology to acquire the knowledge and skills of their primary area of specialization in Entomology, while at the same time gaining the perspective and methods needed for work in the international agriculture. Graduate study in this program seeks to prepare students to assume leadership roles in science, science education, outreach, and project management anywhere in the world. Students are required to write research proposals and expected to write grants to support their research activities, reflecting the dual-title degree. As part of their professional development presentations, publication of research articles and active participation in professional societies is expected. Emphasis is placed upon the professional development of the student. Students are able to specialize in the research program areas of chemical ecology, disease ecology and biology, pollinator ecology and biology, ecology, genomics and pest management.
