Online Masters Degree in Entomology

The Department of Entomology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) offers a full curriculum distance M.S. degree in Entomology. The distance option emphasizes course work in entomology and flexibility in non-entomological training specific to individual student needs and interests. The distance M.S. option was developed for students who cannot participate in an on-campus degree program. Intended audiences for this degree are individuals actively involved in entomologically related professions where advanced training in entomology is desirable, as well as those seeking such positions. Examples include agricultural professionals, crop consultants, pest control operators, middle and high school science and biology teachers, and military personnel. Students enrolled in the distance program will have the opportunity to apply the training they receive in this program to their individual professions. In the Department of Entomology, we strive to build programs designed to meet the needs of our students! Here are a few highlights:
  • The Distance M.S. in Entomology degree program follows the requirements for an Option III masters degree. This is a non-thesis option. These requirements are determined by UNL's Graduate College.
  • The degree requires 36 credit hours of graduate level coursework.
  • The degree requires 18 credit hours in entomology.
  • The degree requires that at least 18 hours be from graduate courses that do not have an undergraduate counterpart.
