Seth Wilson '07
I graduated with a BA in International Relations and minor in economics in 2007.
I work as a researcher for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game's Division of Subsistence, a small social sciences division within a natural resource management organization. Using research methodologies generally found in anthropology (participant observation, key respondent interviews, and questionnaires) we investigate and report on the traditional uses of the State's natural resources. The practical application of this information is to understandhow fish and wildlife regulations, resource development projects, and natural crises affect the private lives and community dynamics of rural residents that largely depend on hunting, fishing, and gathering for most of their food.
I hate to admit it now but the most practical course I took at UOP was International Research Methods (taught by Prof. Susan Sample). A second choice would be cross-cultural training.
