So if you are looking at this degree, you’ve probably heard the famous and often annoying question: ‘What are you going to do with a history degree?’ Well, you can either smack that person over the head with your renaissance history textbook, or you can simply explain to them that we rely on history to make better decisions for the future. Not to mention there are a variety of career paths with a history degree. Professionals who majored in history can work as lawyers, government officials, journalists, teachers, writers, and even businessmen and women. That last one is real; businesses are realizing that the close reading and analytical skills are good for their companies, especially in the information age. Since there is a lot to cover in history many schools allow students to concentrate in particular eras, regions, or historical movements.
