Career opportunities

Study Linguistics with us and you'll develop a range of analytical and problem-solving skills. 

Often dealing with granular and complex data, your combination of humanities and scientific understanding will allow you to make connections across multiple fields of employment, including the media, marketing, speech and language therapy, lexicography, and teaching. 

Social Anthropology prepares graduates to meet the demands of new and unexpected situations. 

Employers are increasingly recognising the value of a degree that combines an understanding of culture and society with practical people skills. 

The University of Manchester is the most targeted university in the UK for top graduate employers (High Fliers Research, 2019). 

Our Social Anthropology students have gone on to work with relief organisations, development agencies and the government. Others opt for the media, filmmaking and journalism, education, social services or business and personnel management. 

The University has its own dedicated  Careers Service  that you would have full access to as a student and for two years after you graduate. 

At Manchester you will have access to a number of  opportunities to help boost your employability
