Possible Careers

What can you do with a degree in History?

Career opportunities are probably more diverse for the history graduate than for graduates of any other academic program, because the study of history teaches you to research, organize, analyze and present. You're learning how to think, not what to think - a skill that translates to any career you choose.

Besides the traditional fields of education, law and journalism, you may follow diverse career paths that lead you to the FBI, international business or graduate school. Our graduates are working as:
  • archivists
  • museum curators
  • policy advisors, and
  • in the non-profit sector.
Others are working:
  • for the Foreign Service
  • for the National Parks Service
  • as health care professionals, and
  • in national, state or local governments.
If you view history as nothing more than a series of dates, places and people from long ago - take another look. You'll see that a history degree from Wheeling Jesuit can be the first step in an exciting, diverse educational or professional experience.
