9 Jobs You Can Get With an Art History Degree (and the Skills You Can Take to Any Role)

It can be a tedious process just to find an academic interest that you truly enjoy! And once you finally do, it can feel so great to be interested in the class material and find yourself enjoying the homework (or at least sometimes enjoying it). But usually, at some point, you may start to wonder, “What can I actually do with this major”? It’s different when it might be a major that directly relates to a career like nursing or engineering. But let’s take art history for example. That may not be easy for you to know what career options are commonly available for someone who focuses on that major.

If you are interested in seeing some of the popular career options for an art history major, then check out this article from “The Muse” that goes over in detail, the following 9 jobs:

  • Journalist
