Our Extension, research, and outreach programs have had a tremendous global impact, largely due to the energy of a strong graduate student program (>50 . and . students and growing!). Our faculty are deeply committed to providing individual education and professional development opportunities for our students inside and outside the classroom. We encourage prospective students to explore our department and consider Virginia Tech as you build the foundation for your career as an entomologist.
