Radek, what jobs can you get with an Entomology Degree? I’m wondering, what can I do with an Entomology Degree?

Many, if not most, jobs in entomology will require an advanced degree, and many people working in entomology simultaneously further their studies.

An undergraduate (bachelor’s) degree in entomology can lead to jobs in areas of applied entomology such as: agriculture, beekeeping, ecology, conservation, genetics, pest management, toxicology, and insecticidal chemistry.

Potential employers include: colleges and universities, FDA, chemical companies, biology labs, research facilities, and pest management companies.
