Honeybees pollinate crops like apples, almonds, berries, peaches, soybeans and coffee. The honeybee population is declining due to overuse of pesticides, loss of habitat, disease and other threats. SIUE students help maintain healthy colonies and work closely with faculty to study the lifespan of these important insects.

Whether you plan on wearing a beekeeper suit or a business suit, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills needed for a successful career by working alongside faculty members conducting leading-edge research. Future employers will notice, too – average starting salaries for SIUE graduates are among the highest in Illinois and Missouri.
