Many history undergraduates choose to pursue further education in order to meet their career goals: thus future teachers would seek an education degree, or would-be archivists might seek entry into a Master of Archival Studies program. Still others might consider the law after completing a B.A. in history. However, it is not always necessary to pursue further study to get a job; graduates of history programs often find careers in research, writing, historical interpretation, or the human services fields.
