From the AHA blog comes this story, "New Report Finds U. S. History Majors Highest Earners in Humanites." There is also a breakdown of U. S. History majors careers, with Management, Sales, and Education topping the list. The Chronicle of Higher Education has an interactive graph with a more refined breakdown of majors and careers. If you want to read the full report, you can find it here.
At Bonas history majors can go into our secondary ed program or explore career options with internships or in our public and digital history classes.
