    It varies enormously. If you only want to become a journalist for the money then choose another career.

    I'm currently studying History, planning on going into heritage, hopefully research or management. Law is also a common path as some people do conversion courses, some people also go into post-grad, doing research and teaching in unis etc.

    A history degree can lead to any job that doesn't require a specific degree which is about 2/3rds of them, the key is to get work experience, this could be working for a charity, the civil service, and I'm sure many roles in businesses (although thats not my area of expertise). Plus a fair number of History students go on to do the graduate diploma in law as has been alluded to.

    "An analysis of the statistics found that three quarters (75 per cent) of those who studied science subjects at university were in "professional" jobs, compared to 55 per cent of those that took creative arts degrees, 52 per cent of those that studied languages and 51 per cent of those who studied history and philosophy subjects.
    And just 5.1 per cent of science students were working in factories and "elementary occupations", compared to more than one in 10 (10.6 per cent) creative arts graduates and 10 per cent of those who took history and philosophy."
