Because of mutual interests and problems in the field of pest management, the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology and the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences offer a joint major, Plant Protection. In a world of expanding human population and increasing pressure on supplies of food and fiber, studies in plant pathology, entomology, and weed science can lead to a challenging and satisfying career that contributes to human welfare. This combined major allows students to study applied and basic aspects of insects, plant diseases, and weeds. Courses and field experience emphasize recognition of pests and their symptoms and strategies for pest management compatible with agriculture and the environment.
