History is being made right now.

Careers and employability
Knowledge and understanding of the past is of incalculable value both to the individual and to society, and as one of our History students you will gain a wide range of academic and transferable skills to achieve this.
As well as through study, the combination of skills gained from work experience and extracurricular activities can help boost your job prospects and develop a well-rounded CV. Undertaking volunteering or work experience with organisations and businesses that you are interested in working for will help you develop some skills that are relevant to your career interests. For example, experience working with museum collections if you want to pursue a career in curatorship.
… on graduation
History graduates find employers respect and desire the skills they acquire. Popular career routes include research or teaching, politics, law, business, social care, arts and museum curatorship, journalism, librarianship and archiving.
Some graduates choose to progress to further study, either to continue their research within History, or to gain more direct vocational qualifications such as museum and heritage management, teaching, or tourism.
Our History course also has established links with its former students, through which we receive employment opportunities for graduating students. Our graduates have gone on to forge successful careers both within large, well-known organisations and the small to medium-sized companies that constitute much of the UK economy.
