Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Only a small number of students study courses sitting under this broad subject, so there isn't a lot of information available on what graduates do when they finish - bear that in mind when you look at the stats. Teaching, advertising and the creative arts were the most common industries for these graduates, but it's a good idea to attend open days and talk to tutors about what you might expect from a specific course and what previous graduates typically go on to do.
