Anthropology Day – Perth

Anthopologists from the University of Western Australia will come together to promote the discipline of anthropology.

Anthropology Day is a free event for Year 12 and FE students, and for teachers, careers advisers and parents.

Students can explore career paths with anthropology, compare undergraduate courses at all the university stalls, gain tips on university admission and interact with students who are currently studying anthropology.

Anthropology Day is part of Social Sciences Week (10-16 September 2018), which aims to deepen public awareness of the social sciences in Australia.
