For our purposes, the history channel of College Majors 101 is dedicated to those who want to make an entire career out of being an historian. There are many different avenues for historians, whether it is going to the Masters and PhD level and teaching in a university, or working for corporations like Coca Cola or Wells Fargo as their corporate historian.
