Careers

Our goal is to help you put your Oregon State history education to work. The Public History and Internship Program in OSU's School of History, Philosophy, and Religion is designed to help students learn more about working in a variety of history and heritage occupations, gain valuable practical experience, and earn credit toward the history major.

Know your value

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, people with a bachelor's degree earn on average 64 percent more per week than those with a high school diploma. The difference in total earnings over the course of a person's career could be as much as $1 million.

Oregon State students who earn a degree in history are able to bring a new viewpoint to a wide variety of career fields. History graduates go on to work in fields such as politics, law, research, education (in traditional classrooms or museum settings), social sciences, business and international relations.
