Others can use their acquired skills in positions requiring research and analysis of cultural groups data; or, still others, can expect to be applicants and be accepted to prestigious graduate programs, as have some of our past students.
Additional competencies gained include the ability to conduct analysis of the cultural context of social policy, cultural content of educational programs, analysis of the effect of international programs on local communities, ethnographic evaluation of social projects.
