Will this degree give me a job?

Will your education give you a job after graduation? Is it worth spending three years of study and study loans on?

We know that our students get jobs after graduation! With a degree from Uppsala University in our subjects you have fantastic opportunities for getting jobs relevant for your training.

In 2008, a survey was sent out to former students who during 2001-2005 had received a degree with archaeology as a major subject. 41 % said that their entire professional time following graduation had been in the area for which they had trained; an additional 9% had done so during more than half the time. Our students work within professions as widely spread as museum antiquarian, fieldwork, desk officers for archaeological issues, culture consultants, postgraduate students.
