Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
This section covers a range of subjects that are often very different, so if you have a particular course in mind, the data here might not fully reflect the possible outcomes from your particular choice. Graduates from these subjects tend to do similar sorts of things to graduates from other social studies courses, so welfare and community roles are common, as are education, whilst graduates also often go into marketing and HR jobs, and employment rates are good in general – but talk to course tutors and attend open days and try to get stats for the course you’re interested in.

This is a category for graduates taking a wide range of courses that don’t fall neatly into a subject group, so be aware that the stats you see here may not be a very accurate guide to the outcomes for the course you’re interested in. Management, finance, marketing, education and jobs in the arts are some of the typical jobs for these graduates, but it's sensible to go on open days and talk to tutors about what you might expect from the course, and what previous graduates did.

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. Graphic arts, education and PR are some of the typical jobs for 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.
