History opens thousands of doors to you that have nothing to do with the subject. Its a degree that 'trains your brain' and teaches you how to present an argument, read/write effectively etc. For all these reasons, employers like History grads!

Yes, there are jobs in the museum/heritage sector, but most people end up in other areas. This from St Andrews as one example : http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/careers/...ng_your_degree.
Do History. You wont regret it.

I am following the typical route of academia (if I can find enough scholarship funding), but a degree in history can open many doors. It can be moulded to suit almost any career path, including: marketing, finance and accountancy, law, consultancy, administration, education, heritage and culture, and many more.
