Entomology and Plant Pathology
In the Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology, we enjoy a rich tradition in teaching, research and outreach activities as part of a land-grant institution in Alabama. From hiring our first entomologist in 1896 and our first plant pathologist in 1903, the entomology and plant pathology program at Auburn has grown to its present faculty of entomologists with teaching, research and/or extension responsibilities. Auburn University is an integral part of the Auburn community, a college town situated in east-central Alabama. As a part of the College of Agriculture, our department offers a broad range of both basic and applied courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels, providing a sound background for students considering careers in entomology, plant pathology and related areas. The curriculum is complemented by a diversity of courses in agricultural and biological sciences offered through several departments throughout our college and university.
