    There are many career options open to history graduates with varying educational requirements. Historians become educators in the public school systems, universities and colleges and for museums and sites that are historical. They do research, possibly for a think tank or historical organization. They may enter the field of historical or landmark preservation or work as a self-employed consultant. Other career options include writer, businessperson, journalist, archivist, librarian, diplomat, advocate, curator and editor.

    Master's degree programs in history immerse the student deeper in their understanding of specific regions and eras. Areas of study include the social and political history of countries that have been influential in world development, in-depth research and written analysis, and preparation of a thesis. Course completion requirements and completion time vary depending on the educational institution, transferable credits, and the learning pace of the student.
