A degree in history

Career outlook
WJR interviewed history students about their thoughts on the 2016 election.

An education in history prepares you to conduct research, evaluate information, think critically and communicate clearly and persuasively. Historians develop versatile skills that are transferable to careers in education, museums, public service, nonprofits, tourism, publishing and business and administration. A history degree also provides a strong foundation for graduate work in the social sciences and humanities and for professional programs in law and medicine.
