Exploring This Job

Explore extracurricular, volunteer, or part-time opportunities that will give you some background experience in your field of interest. If it is ethnobotany, look for a summer job working in a city park or with a local florist or nursery. If it is ethnoveterinary medicine, look for part-time or volunteer work at a veterinarian's office or animal shelter. To explore your interest in ethnozoology, work at a zoo. If ethnolinguistics interests you, try learning a language that is not offered at your school; for example, learn Swahili, Hawaiian, or Tagalog. To explore ethnomusicology, listen to recorded and live world music and visit museums and music stores that carry indigenous instruments. Museums offer a wealth of information on different cultures, including exhibits, reading materials, lectures, and workshops.
