Potential Careers

History degrees, consisting of basic liberal arts courses, have traditionally provided employment in business, government, law and other out-of-history careers. This is particularly the case in graduate programs, like law, that have no specific pre-professional curricula.

There are also many para-historical fields, which draw on history, such as: archivists, librarians, curators, museum administrators, national park curators and teachers at secondary and higher education levels.

History majors are also valued in private sector jobs, which are heavily information-based like journalism. Students who major in history often pursue graduate education in English, Foreign Languages and The Humanities.
