What can I do With a Degree in History?

Oh, Sweetie, I can answer this one from first hand experience! If you can say ‘Would you like fries with that?’, then a history degree would be a great choice for you. Seriously, you could use a degree in history to score a gig answering questions on ask.com. You can also use a history degree as a springboard to enter just about any company that sees the value of a liberal arts education… and many do! You could concentrate on a field in Public History (i.e. archival administration, policy research, museum curating, historic preservation) to find jobs in museums, libraries, corporations and various political agencies.
