So What CAN You Do With a History Major?

Many of you may be graduating this coming semester (and if so, congratulations), and you may be wondering, what can I do with my history major? One answer: a lot more than you might initially think.

The well-known historian and blogger John Fea, who runs the blog The Way of Improvement Leads Home, has for the last few years been hosting blog entries from his former students and history majors at his college (Messiah College in Pennsylvania), who write about the astonishing variety of uses to which they are putting their history majors. The series may be found under the title question “So What CAN You Do with a History Major?” So far nearly 40 of his former students have put up their life stories, and reflected on the meaning of their history majors. I encourage you all to peruse through some of those entries, and expand your thinking about the possibilities open to you in the future.
