Master's Degree in Agricultural Education

Agricultural education combines leadership development, experiential learning, and classroom instruction to teach others the importance of agriculture, food, and natural resources. Agricultural educators teach (both formally and informally) these subjects using a variety of content areas such as science, communication, leadership, math, and technology. A person who receives a degree in Agricultural Education is not solely locked into teaching. Potential occupations also include lobbyist, professional facilitator, industry communication director, and Extension work.

Entomology Graduate Degree

The Entomology Graduate Program offers qualified candidates opportunities for graduate study and research leading to the Master of Arts, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. In keeping with traditional areas of strength at the university, a number of major research programs in entomology deal with problems in agriculture, forestry, and environmental quality. Integrated pest management techniques are emphasized in the solution of many of these problems.

There are no specific course requirements for entomology graduate degrees. Each student will work with their major professor and/or graduate committee to establish a program of study.

For additional information on the Entomology Graduate Program, see the program website at http://entomology.oregonstate.edu/.
