A bachelor's degree in history is a flexible degree that leads to any number of career paths. Many history majors go on pursue a law degree after finishing with their undergraduate schooling, while others seek licensure to become teachers. "An undergraduate history degree develops and refines good writing and research skills, as well as critical thinking, coupled with a strong knowledge of how our society and culture has arrived where it is today," says Sam Mazany, editor at Nonprofit Colleges Online. "A liberal arts education in history can pave the way into many kinds of careers, depending largely on where a student's creative talents and interests may lead. History majors go on become journalists, editors, social workers, librarians, archivists, and public relations specialists. These are just a few possibilities. A bachelor's degree in history is also an ideal segway into postgraduate studies in the humanities, leading to a career in academia. "Whatever one's career goals," adds Sam Mazany, "Nonprofit Colleges Online hopes that this ranking will help with the decision making process for prospective students who are interested in a solid and affordable option for earning a bachelor's of history degree online."
