So if you are thinking about a major in history (but are not sure what you would do with it), here are some ideas: teacher, museum curator, government or corporate archivist, documentary editor, journal editor, public policy researcher, lawyer, congressional staffer, and foreign service officer. The possibilities seem endless because the skills learned as a history major provide the foundation for many careers.
