If you pursue an interest in 8-bit systems, being proficient in 6502 Assembly Language should prove to be very useful, but even apart from that, there are some good reasons to learn assembly language. Understanding computers at this level will help you understand computer architecture - that's why "Computer Architecture and Assembly Language" is a mainstay in Computer Science curricula. This understanding can also provide insight into Cyber Security. In short, knowing assembly language makes you a better programmer.

I would also argue that, if you have yet to learn an assembly language, starting with a simple one such as the 6502 makes a lot of sense.
