According to the University of Arkansas's entomology program, studying entomology prepares you for a career that can take you any direction you choose. If basic science and discovery are to your liking, insects are fascinating and very appropriate model organisms for studying molecular biology, physiological processes, ecosystem functions, community ecology, and evolution. If you are interested in applied ecology, managing insects is a full-time job for countless entomologists working in agriculture, disease epidemiology, forestry, and even the military.
