Your future

Great demand for the knowledge found in this humanist subject

As a trained ethnologist, you have a wide range of future employers – organisations, municipalities and authorities. For example, you could work as an evaluator, administrator or project manager in areas that deal with culture, tourism, issues for children and adolescents. There is a demand for ethnographic knowledge in many areas of work.

The foundation of Ethnology – questions about gender, migration and integration – provide you with expertise on the labour market. The subject is closely linked to behavioural science and facilitates the understanding of a sometimes confusing world, providing tools that are useful in all areas of life. The historical perspective gives you the opportunity to discover and understand contemporary phenomena at a deeper level.

Former students are now employed at embassies, museums, multicultural centres, the Swedish Migration Agency and in academia.
