Faculty and students in Entomology at WSU are committed to improving the long-term sustainability of agricultural systems through research, teaching, and Extension. Our department offers M.S. and Ph.D. programs in Entomology, with about 20 graduate students currently enrolled. In addition, we host graduate students pursuing an M.S. in Agriculture.

Undergraduate students can select B.S. programs in Agricultural and Food Systems (with majors in agricultural education; agricultural technology and production management; agricultural and food business economics, organic agriculture systems; and agriculture and food security) and Integrated Plant Sciences (with majors in agricultural biotechnology; field crop management; fruit and vegetable management; landscape design; landscape, nursery, and greenhouse management; turfgrass management; and viticulture and enology).

First-class facilities include a newly acquired Honey Bee and Pollinator Facility in Othello, over 200 shared honey bee colonies, and hundreds of acres of irrigated research farm ground. Partnerships with the USDA Agricultural Research Service, commodity commissions, the agriculture industry, and family farms result in well-rounded and timely research, successful outreach, and opportunities for student internships.
