This program is excellent preparation for a wide range of careers. The emphasis on broadly applicable skills such as research, writing, face-to-face communication, and critical thinking prepare graduates for any number of jobs. More specifically, history graduates are especially well suited to work not only as archivists, academic historians, public historians and curators, but also as diplomats, editors, law clerks, librarians, publicists, and writers. A history degree is also superb academic preparation for graduate studies in law, business, and many academic disciplines.
In high school take history, English, geography, government, and foreign languages.
