Employment possibilities for history graduates include positions with government agencies and departments at the federal, state, and local levels. Within the federal government, historians in the Departments of Education, State, and Defense, serve as analysts and researchers. Diplomats and members of their entourages often have backgrounds in history. Federal and state legislatures also hire historians as staff members to work and investigative committees.
