Common Career Options for History Graduates
Students often ask, “So what can I do with a history major?” This is an important, practical question. Unlike professional degrees, such as nursing, pharmacy or accounting, there is no single career track that all history majors take after graduating. Instead, a history major’s skillset can be directed at a variety of professions, so your career options can be more flexible.
BSU history majors have entered careers in high school or collegiate teaching, law, government, business, religious ministry, library science, book editing and museum work. Historians make good legislators, journalists, business leaders and authors. A history major pairs well with social studies education, business, pre-law, English, philosophy, political science and other degree programs.
