What will I learn?

Anthropology is the study of contemporary human cultural lives. This degree centers on anthropology’s ethnographic approach, which is employed to understand how people live their lives, on their own terms. Such an approach enables anthropologists to examine key global challenges and events, like climate change and xenophobia, as well as how government policies, technologies, and products and services are incorporated into people’s lives. Designed for those whose work or interest is in understanding people in specific contexts, this program equips students with the necessary ethnographic skills and opportunities to undertake analysis of human lives, and to make cross-cultural comparisons.

Employment Opportunities

In a globalized world, cross-cultural literacy has never been more important. Beyond further academic study, anthropology graduates work across a large range of sectors including government (multicultural affairs, migration, health, and development aid), corporate sector (market research, social use of technology, cross-cultural management, consumer behavior) and community work (non-governmental organizations in Australia and abroad).
