About

In the Master’s Anthropology - Visual Anthropology programme from Aarhus University , you gain considerable practical experience. Independent anthropological fieldwork or fieldwork practicum in a Danish or foreign company or organisation provides you with an opportunity to use anthropological methods and theories in practice.   

Overview

In the degree programme, you work with cultures and societies around the world. You work with a comparative perspective and, through the study of social and cultural conditions, you seek to acquire an understanding of human conditions and the way they change. You gain insight into how people live and interact with each other and into the society's institutions, rules, traditions and technology. Anthropology deals with humans as social and cultural beings and with the way we interact with each other and society. These are important skills in an increasingly globalised world, and with a Master’s Anthropology - Visual Anthropology programme from Aarhus University you are well equipped for the Danish as well as the international job market.

You also strengthen your individual competence profile and specialise in specific topics through your choice of track and selection of topic for fieldwork and thesis. Many students draw on material and data from their fieldwork or practical training in the thesis.

Career

Anthropologists have many different career paths, including teaching, project management, development projects, and consultancy and analysis work within the following areas:

  • The social sector: Many anthropologists are employed in private consultancy firms, municipalities or educational institutions within the social sector. Examples of these include project managers, job consultants in municipal job centres, labour market and integration consultants, researchers and teachers in education programmes for social workers.
  • Organisation and staff: Anthropologists who specialise in organisational and industrial anthropology can find work in human resources and organisational development departments in both private and public sector companies via recruitment agencies or as external consultants.
  • Development and aid to developing countries: Many anthropologists are involved in the planning, implementation and evaluation of development projects, where they can be based in Denmark or posted abroad working for NGOs, the Danish International Development Agency (Danida), consultancy firms, etc.
  • Analysis and evaluation: As an anthropologist, you become skilled at undertaking systematic analyses. Many graduates therefore find jobs in consultancy firms or public institutions, where they carry out evaluation and analysis work in different areas, such as psychiatry or the treatment of drug abusers.
  • Health: You have the opportunity to specialise in health anthropology and apply for jobs such as a project manager, intermediary, development consultant or project evaluator in the health sector.
