General Description

History is a narrative account of the political, social, and cultural events and achievements of mankind.  Historians evaluate and analyze documents and records relating to the deeds and aspirations of past generations and use this knowledge to understand and interpret the present.

With a Bachelor's Degree, you can get entry-level jobs in government service, communications, banking, finance, and sales.  You need an advanced degree to consider yourself a professional historian and to find jobs in research or archival work. Those who go on for additional training often become lawyers or college teachers.
