I'm currently doing a History MA on a full scholarship.

Initially, I thought it was a waste of time + money, but the scholarship offer turned me around since I love History.

But now I'm still unsure what my career options are looking like. What sort of employers/sectors value a research-orientated degree like History? What are my career options other than teaching?
