Employers of History majors in PA

Historians research, analyze, interpret, and present the past by studying a variety of historical documents and sources. Historians work in government agencies, museums, archives, historical societies, research organizations, nonprofits, and consulting firms. Some must travel to carry out research. Most work full time. Although most historian positions require a master’s degree, some research positions require a doctoral degree. Candidates with a bachelor’s degree may qualify for some entry-level positions, but most will not be traditional historian jobs. The median annual wage for historians was $52,480 in May 2012. Employment of historians is projected to grow 6 percent from 2012 to 2022, slower than the average for all occupations. Competition for jobs should be very strong because there are a small number of positions relative to the number of people seeking jobs in the field.
