Careers in Futurology

Futures Studies or Futurology is the science, art and practice of postulating possible, probable and preferable futures and the world views and myths that underlie them. Futures Studies seek to understand what is likely to continue, what is likely to change and what is novel. Part of the discipline thus seeks a systematic and pattern-based understanding of past and present and to determine the likelihood of future events and trends. A key part of this process is understanding the potential future impact of decisions made by individuals, organisations and governments. It is an interdisciplinary field.
