This blog post is part of a regular series to inform the AHA Today readership and AHA membership about Career Diversity for Historians, the AHA’s initiative to broaden the career horizons of history PhDs.
Our institutions of higher learning will soon release upon the job market thousands of eager graduates, many of them with degrees in history.
The American Historical Association has received a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to continue, expand, and enhance its “Career Diversity and the History PhD” initiative.
So, you’re in graduate school, you’ve chosen history, but you realize the academy is not for you. You’d like to think about other careers, but you don’t know anyone with a history degree who works anywhere else.
