Careers in History

This page is for students who are looking into becoming History majors or who are History majors and have questions about career options.

What can I do with a History major?  You'd be surprised, as there are numerous options available, beyond just teaching and working in archives.  See what CUNY, Hanover, and the American Historical Association have to say on the issue.  Cable News Network also has some useful information on how to work your History degree.

Okay, so History majors can do more than just teach or work in archives.  But how much do they make?  Again, you'll be surprised, both when looking at jobs available to majors and when comparing History to other majors.
