Employers value the skills that students acquire through studying History. Our degree programme will enhance your abilities to analyse complex data and present clear and coherent arguments in essays, presentations and classroom discussions. These skills are readily transferable to most areas of work.
Our graduates have used their historical knowledge to develop careers as academic librarians, archivists, heritage managers, museum/gallery conservators, records managers and information officers. Others have found success in sectors as diverse as accountancy, auditing, television and radio, journalism, local government, publishing, marketing, finance and banking.
Many graduates have elected to continue their studies by taking a Masters degree in History, a Postgraduate Certificate in Education or a vocational training course in areas like Museum Studies, Librarianship, Heritage Studies and Archive Management.
As a Hull graduate, you will continue to have access to the University Careers Service, which provides a wealth of advice and information on the world of work, as well as maintaining close links with local, regional, national and international graduate employers.
