For example, you may wish to analyse power institutions and their impact on issues such as cultural hegemony, assimilation and imperialism. Alternatively, you may examine topics within globalisation, such as how ecotourism has an impact on human and ecological systems.
Careers are wide-ranging, and may include roles in public services such as immigration units, conservation and charity work, or public policy and legislation for government departments and international agencies.
