Career Opportunities

Recent History graduates have attended law school at Georgetown, Rutgers, and Seton Hall universities. They have enrolled in Ph.D. programs at Temple and Yale universities and have earned Ph.D. degrees at Rice University and the University of Rochester.

Upon completing their education, history majors work in places such as:

  • Archives
  • Government agencies
  • Historical landmarks
  • Law firms
  • Museums
  • Public and private schools

In accordance with our belief that history is, as G.R. Elton once put it, “the only living laboratory we have of the human experience,” the History Department  seeks to immerse you as broadly as possible in that experience.
