I'm currently undecided between a few degree courses, History of Art being one of them. I really love the sound of the degree and will be visiting University open days of the next couple of the months but wondered what this degree would really open up to career wise? Thank you!

Hi!

Sorry this reply is so late, so probably not much use now unless you did select History of Art as your degree.

I know many people who have studied History of Art previously and their jobs range from working in sales to working for the National Trust. I personally will be looking to use my degree to become a museum curator, taking a Curating MA once my degree is completed. Another option I have considered is using the degree to become an arts and travel writer/journalist. These are just my personal ideas though, discussed with careers advisers from my college.

A few websites say the following...

Gina's post above is fantastic.

Quite honestly, you could do a variety of things. Few graduate schemes in the U.K. have specific subject requirements and a simple Linkedin search of careers shows up people who are entrepreneurs, work at companies such as EA and E&Y and others who are academics.
