The Master of Professional Studies in Applied Entomology, a 30-credit, 10-course graduate program may be completed in as little as 15 months. Offered through the convenience and flexibility of the online learning environment, students enroll in two 3-credit courses per 12-week term. In addition to the MPS in Applied Entomology, the Entomology developed several fully online graduate certificate programs. Designed to offer flexibility to complete coursework in areas specific to your needs and interests (as well as to gain a valuable credential), successful completion of one or of these programs may be used to fulfill requirements for the MPS. Each 12-credit program may be completed in one year by taking one 3-credit course per 12-week term.The Graduate Certificate programs are as follows:. Graduate Certificate in Professional Studies in Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Graduate Certificate in Professional Studies in Organic and Sustainable Agriculture. Graduate Certificate in Professional Studies in Urban Agriculture.

Vector Biology and Vector-​Borne Disease Response in Human and Animal Systems -​ Certificate. Vector Biology and Vector-Borne Disease Response in Human and Animal Systems Certificate. The Entomology offers a Vector Biology and Vector-Borne Disease Response in Human and Animal Systems certificate. It is designed to provide a concentration of subject-matter focusing on arthropod vectors of disease pathogens of humans, livestock, wildlife and companion animals. Course concentration includes survey of vectors and vector biology, surveillance, epidemiology, emergency response, preparedness and management. Entomology program will be administered by the Entomology in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. The certificate will bridge with the College of Veterinary Medicine and BioMedical Sciences and with the School of Public Health in the Texas A M Health Sciences Center. This subject-matter concentration is designed to prepare students with competitive advantages for employment opportunities where planning, preparation and response to outbreaks of vector-borne diseases are advantageous. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have recognized there are long-term shortages of specialists and practitioners with knowledge and skills to respond to the complexities of vector-borne diseases critical to the needs for community, county, state and national responses. Mosquito, tick, and other arthropod-borne diseases such as Zika, Dengue, Chikungunya, West Nile Virus, Chagas, and Lyme Disease, are among many examples of vector-borne maladies with impacts on humans, companion animals, livestock and wildlife. Global trade and travel continue to pose additional risks for introductions of exotic vectors and vector-borne pathogens. The concentration of course work offered through this academic certificate is intended to prepare graduate students to manage and respond to outbreaks of vector-borne diseases as future professionals in many disciplines. The Labor Statistics estimates there will be continued growth of 5-11% employment through 2024 for discipline categories related to vector-borne diseases. Students completing this certificate will be able to identify the various interest groups and interact with the range of participants in solving issues associated with a vector-borne disease outbreak.
