Entomology

Field Description

Excellent facilities for laboratory and field studies include the outstanding Entomology Library and a renowned insect collection on the Cornell campus. The Boyce Thompson Institute at Cornell and the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station at Geneva are outstanding research facilities.

For doctoral degree candidates, a prescriptive academic review is required and is usually held during the first year. The qualifying examination should be taken by the fifth semester.
