Careers and your future in Anthropology

Brunel anthropology students have a good understanding of cultural and social diversity and 90% of our graduates are in work or further study six months after graduation.

One of the features of the studying anthropology at Brunel is the opportunity to do ‘fieldwork’ – practical research with people in their own settings anywhere in the world.

Fieldwork will grow your knowledge, confidence and independence and help you to develop valuable skills like problem solving, teamwork and working independently. You will also develop a strong understanding about what makes people different.

Employers value this in our graduates who have gone on to work in a variety of organisations such as  Unicef, the NHS, NGOs and charities such as Oxfam and Save the Children, as well as in local government, legal sectors, business and the media.

Our graduates work as teachers, journalists and research officers in the health and social sectors, and in other professions requiring knowledge of social and cultural processes.  

The option to study part of your anthropology degree abroad provides an additional opportunity to experience another culture and to build valuable contacts.
