A Human Geography and Anthropology degree from Brunel is your passport to a wide range of career destinations. You will acquire knowledge and understanding that is highly relevant to current world challenges, as well as an array of skills that will set you apart from other graduates.
Fieldwork, in particular, requires you to practice skills in real-world settings. Not only will you learn to plan, collect and analyse data, but you'll also become adept at working in an unfamiliar environment, taking account of relevant ethical and safety issues, interacting respectfully with people, and problem-solving as a group and individually.
If you opt for the four-year degree you will undertake one or two sandwich placements, either in an employment situation or undertaking extended fieldwork (almost) anywhere in the world. You will be fully supported in preparing for the placement and building a stronger CV.
In the third year, you can opt for the module ‘Leadership for Change’ in which you will work with other students and with a community organisation on a project that will further develop your employability skills.
Our course prepares you for careers in different fields including the local and national government, the environmental sector, international development, leisure and tourism, media and communications, planning, research, and academia.
