Careers

It's the question almost everybody asks  "what kind of job can I get with one of your degrees?"

degrees with a focus on practicality

Our graduates have gone on to a huge variety of careers and whatever you want to do - we offer you the chance to gain the skills and get the advice to make the best of life after university. As well as having access to UCL's Careers Service the STS department has a Careers Officer, a member of the academic team, who co-ordinates careers advice and information with the department and organises regular careers events. 

For more details visit our careers web page.

Here are just a few of the things our graduates are doing

  • Traineeship with a City Law Firm
  • Civil Service Fast Stream
  • Curator at the Science Museum
  • Science Learning Manager at the Royal Institution
  • Freelance journalist writing for the Guardian
  • Further Study at Masters and PhD level
  • Junior Planning Executive in a marketing company
  • Features Editor for a music website

Alongside researching, critical thinking and academic writing we make sure our graduates are prepared with a range of skills that will help them in the workplace. As part of your degree you'll learn to give presentations, write for different audiences and work on a substantial group project. You can also take advantage of opportunities to become a mentor, represent students on department and university committees, and to produce articles, podcasts and videos for our website.
