Our research focus includes honey bee parasite and disease management, insects as agents of biological control, crop and livestock entomology, landscape ecology, pollination biology, arthropod ectoparasites of mammals and birds, the study of insect bio-diversity, and conventional and molecular systematics and bioinformatics studies of Hymenoptera. Adjunct professors associated with the Department provide additional depth and breadth in the areas of forest entomology, pheromone chemistry, crop protection entomology, stored product entomology, biological control of weeds, and the role of insects in aquatic ecosystems
Admission to the MSc program requires a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.00 over the final two years of your undergraduate program. For the PhD program, a GPA of 3.00 during your Master program is required. Students with equivalent qualifications will be considered. You are also expected to have taken some previous courses in insect biology. Academically strong students without this preparation may be admitted to the MSc degree but may be expected to take additional courses to ensure that they have a strong foundation of entomological knowledge. International students will be required to submit evidence that they meet the University of Manitoba’s English language competence requirements before their applications will be considered.
