History Career Information

History majors are well prepared to enter careers in government service, education, journalism, law, genealogy research, historic preservation and restoration work, and any of the many specialist positions in libraries and museums. 

A graduate with a bachelor's degree in this field might:

  • work with an arts and humanities council,
  • serve on the staff of a legislator, governor, or mayor,
  • or get a job on a public radio or television station.
  • National park service,
  • intelligence services,
  • foreign service,
  • state and municipal archives,
  • and local politics also offer opportunities. 

With a master's or doctorate degree, teaching at a college or university is also an option.
