The Department of Entomology offers an undergraduate minor in Entomology intended for students who are interested in insects, their management, and their role in the functioning of nature and agricultural ecosystems. Insects represent the single largest group of animal species — they impact every facet of human life and they are a very important part of our environment. This minor provides an opportunity for students to become familiar with the great diversity of insect life, to explore their form and function, to study their impact on and relationships with plants, humans, and other animals, and to learn about various methods of control.
The Undergraduate minor program in Entomology is coordinated by David Orr, the Entomology Undergraduate Teaching Coordinator, who acts as the minor advisor or assigns a minor advisor appropriate to the interests of the student.
David Orr will certify the minor prior to graduation. The minor must be completed no later than the semester in which the student expects to graduate from his or her degree program. Paperwork for certification should be completed no later than during the registration period for the student’s final semester at NC State.
