Whether students come to St Andrews for this degree because they are interested in supplementing their already acquired professional skills or because they are keen to pursue further doctoral research in anthropology, our Masters graduates have generally been highly successful. Some secure competitive places and funding on doctoral programmes in the UK and internationally while others choose careers in civil service, international development, journalism, museums and heritage management.
