Best Colleges for History

Unless you plan on pursuing a Ph.D., a degree in history is unlikely to lead directly to a career as a “historian.” However, many degree-earners in this field do go on to teach at the k-12 level. The valuable skills accrued through earning a history degree include writing, critical thinking, and analysis, which translate well into any future workplace or graduate program. In fact, history serves as an excellent area of study for law school candidates as LSAT test-takers who majored in history outscore degree holders in criminal justice, business, or psychology by a wide margin. Regardless of how you plan to use your degree, the institutions on our list of the Best Colleges for History will ready you for success.
