For many, the study of history may seem like just fun thing to study while I college. Many see it simply as a prelude to becoming a lawyer, politician, or something else unrelated. 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.
Why is this Important?
- Professional Associations are where the industry of the major gather together
- Many have student chapters you can join while in college
- Many offer internships, scholarships, and opportunities in the major
