History Careers and Internship Opportunities

An undergraduate degree in History provides you with the research, writing, and speaking skills essential to success in the "real world." Moreover, the kinds of career options available are incredibly diverse. While some positions will expect an advanced degree (such as a Masters), many others are open to a B.A.

What follows is a directory of career opportunities, arranged alphabetically by category, for you to peruse. Many of these jobs offer internships as well as entry-level positions for undergraduates. This list is by no means all-inclusive and is meant only as a vehicle to introduce you to the search process.

The American Historical Association also has an excellent, free on-line guide detailing "What Can You Do With an Undergraduate Degree in History?" There is also an informative article available on the AHA site that offers help in "Advising Undergraduates about Career Opportunities in Public History."

In addition, the Office of Student and Post-Graduate Development can assist with the internship and career search process.
