Courses in economic entomology, diseases and insects of ornamental plants, forest protection, plant pathology, and veterinary entomology are available to undergraduate students. No undergraduate degree exists in the Department of  Entomology and Plant Pathology, but a program leading to the Master of Science degree with a major in entomology and plant pathology and a PhD with a major in plants, soils, and insects and concentrations in entomology, plant pathology, integrated pest management, and bioactive natural products are available (see Graduate Catalog). Instruction and training is provided in those disciplines which deal with the natural hazards that are major causes of losses in agricultural production, namely, insects and plant diseases. Courses of study in entomology or plant pathology should give the student an appreciation of insects and microorganisms, their ecology, population dynamics, potential damage to plants and their products, and various considerations in control alternatives.
