History career plans?

Announcements Posted on
    • Thread Starter

    I just wanted to ask and see what the varying career paths for history students looked like.
    I know most of the people doing history degrees desire to go in to teaching (It's certainly the case on my course) but it'd be nice to see if there were any different paths

    It doesn't have to involve teaching. Careers open to you include archivist, solicitor, journalist, civil Service administrator, librarian, politician, barrister, museum/gallery conservator, historian, etc.

    History is an open degree, where you can have lots of opportunities!
