Senior History majors, recent graduates, and Master’s students at Northern Illinois University may want to consider applying for this position in the region.

The United States Armed Forces and other U.S. government agencies employ historians to assess the past activities of their institutions and to maintain their archival records. This is just one of the potential career opportunities in Public History available to History majors and minors.

Humanities training in historical research, intensive reading, document analysis, textual criticism, and information management make History majors ideal candidates for many jobs beyond teaching.
