Careers in History

Where can History take you?

Above find a great podcast series on careers for historians.

Many of our students go on to graduate school, law school, or become teachers at the elementary or secondary level. This is because the history major emphasizes the continuity of culture by providing a historical background for the study of other disciplines and the tools necessary for responsible citizenship. It also helps to prepare students for careers in teaching, public service, consulting, research, museums, archives, and libraries, and provides a liberal education as a basis for entering a variety of careers such as public administration, business, and law.
