"I thoroughly enjoyed the program and found it stimulating and challenging. I had always wanted to attend graduate school, but I could never find the time. Then I discovered UNL's MS in Entomology – a fully accredited online graduate program. I had that rare opportunity to combine my UNL studies with practical research." - 2010 graduate Martin Matisoff, Kentucky
