What Can You Do With a History Major?

Museums, law firms, insurance agencies—these are just a few of the employers who need people who can investigate past events with only fragmented evidence while constructing a narrative around it. Thanks to the insights and skills they gain at Ball State, our alumni go on to rich, fulfilling careers that also provide valuable services to society.
