Where do archaeologists work? Which skills does an archaeology degree give you? Will an archaeology degree make you job-ready?
For Social Science Week, we will be sitting down with UWA Archaeology graduates to talk about their professional experiences and how their degree has helped them in their careers. The panel will reflect the benefits of a HASS degree and showcase the wide range of current employment opportunities for archaeologists: museum sector, cultural heritage management, consultancy archaeology, industry, Aboriginal corporations, and beyond.
Annie Carson (Western Australian Museum), Maddy McAllister (Museum of Tropical Queensland), Kirsty Anderson (Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation), Jade Pervan (heritage consultant), and Ian Ryan (Gavin Jackson CRM) will discuss past and present challenges and opportunities for archaeologists and heritage professionals with Peter Veth (University of Western Australia). The event will also include a Q&A session so that questions can be asked to the panellists.
