23 of the Best Jobs for History Majors

Our friend John Fea recently shared a link to a post entitled “23 of the Best Jobs for History Majors.” Compiled by James Mulvey, an English major-turned-software marketer, it lists “careers that pay well, complement the skills taught in History departments and have long-term growth.” While some would probably come to mind quickly — journalist, museum exhibit designer, perhaps political campaign manager, several prizing research skills — others are much more surprising.

In particular, let me point out that several of the 23 are cutting-edge jobs that lie at the intersection of history, coding, and design: e.g., web developer, CMS editor, content editor and content strategist, UX designer, social media manager. So if any of those career paths intrigue you, then you definitely should be taking DIG200 Intro to Digital Humanities this fall with Prof. Goldberg!
