Anthropology graduates go on to employment in a very great variety of careers in the public and private sectors. Anthropology is becoming increasingly important in the information-based world economy, where an understanding of cultural difference is always crucial—from local to international contexts. The choice of Anthropology in combination with other subjects can give one an advantage in preparing for a career in community work, education, the health professions, aid and development projects, or in certain aspects of business and administration. Opportunities also exist for postgraduate study in Anthropology and related fields. Advanced degrees qualify one as a professional anthropologist, and careers in third level teaching, research, or the application of anthropology in a variety of public and private programmes, national, and international bodies.
