A Doctoral program involves at least 3 years of full-time study beyond the baccalaureate degree. It is the responsibility of the Advisory Committee to determine the total number and types of courses to be taken to suit the needs of each student; however, at least 15 hours of coursework must be graduate (7000) level. For incoming students without a Master’s degree in Entomology, this equates to a minimum of 41 hours of coursework plus 13 hours of dissertation research.
Students with a Master’s degree in Entomology who transfer courses to satisfy required course requirements must take at least 23 additional hours of coursework plus 13 hours of dissertation research. The doctorate must be completed within seven years from the time a student is classified as a Doctoral student (Grad 7).
Introductory Seminar, Dissertation Research Proposal and Program of Study - By the end of the first year, students are required to have presented an Introductory Seminar that details their research plan, and to have had their research proposal accepted by his or her Graduate Advisory Committee.
Guidelines for the proposal are given in Appendix B. A list of completed courses and those proposed to meet departmental requirements (the Program of Study; Appendix C) should also be prepared and presented to the Committee for approval. Upon approval, it is the student’s responsibility to confirm with the LSU Graduate School that courses proposed for transfer credit meet LSU requirements.
