    Unironically no. The STEM meme is pushed so hard that there is actually a decent demand for History teachers. You will probably end up in some kind of teaching career either in a highschool/middle school or if you get a PhD maybe you can try getting a University teaching job. Even if you don't make it in history I'm sure if you can find a way to spin your history degree as being useful for somekind of admin role where they need educated people capable of critical thinking and planning.

      advice though. If you find yourself changing interests go for it if you can. You only get to live once might as well try to make your career about something you like.

      Here is some secret knowledge. People with bachelor's degrees make more money than those without. Up to 1 million US dollars more over a lifetime. There are meme degrees for sure but the ones that have been around for a decades like anything most STEM degrees and pure academia degrees like English, History, Philosophy, ect. Are all viable career paths although many have their own caveats and nuances. For instance a physics major usually has to pursue a PhD to be employable. And engineers only start making 6 digits after a master's degree at least.

      The real meme is "college is a scam" don't fall for it. The people who say this usually come from the poor laboring class and religious. They are anti-intellectuals trying to drag you down into the mud with them.

        Yeah, but the price of college is incredibly overinflated and traps many people in a ton of debt. Also, there are many people that just shouldn’t go to college, but everyone is constantly told that they NEED to go for their music degree.

        College is absolutely essential to really rise to the top, but it's not a meme that it's overpriced to hell. A better take is that, right now, AMERICAN college is a scam. Go get your BA in Germany, the UK, Canada, etc. Where tuition is considerably cheaper (and many offer English taught programs, in the case of Germany or the Netherlands)

            This is how I got through undergrad with very little loan debt—no more than 8ish grand. I went to a cheaper school, got Pell grants, got as many scholarships I could, and worked full time.

          Yep. People who say college/Uni is a scam are just poorfags (or went for a meme degree). There are a few who managed to find a golden goose job without a trade or degree, but the vast majority are stuck in deadend jobs working paycheck to paycheck.

          Uni is free in my nordic country and the degree is recognized in virtually the entire world. Theres zero reason not to pursue college/uni unless you clearly just dont want to go through the effort.

          Once you're finished you fuck off from the globohomo socialist state and work in a country where you get more money or more value for your money.

    I’ve always liked history, but I never saw a career in it. Reading history and larping in history games seemed best left as a hobby. Same with language learning. So I went poli sci and then law school. If you really can’t find work, you can always go the law school route. But it sucks ass and I would tell my kids not to do it. If I had to do it all again, I might choose differently, but I’m also a pretty risk adverse person. So idk

        It’s supposedly pretty standard for a lawyer fresh out of my type of school, but it feels small to me. It’s 70k yearly. The upside is that, if I prove myself, I’ll quickly become a partner at the firm I’m with and many of the attorneys are old and looking to pass their clients on. They seem to make good money for a small firm. That’s what I keep telling myself, at least.

    I took a history class for fun a few semesters back and the teacher was really cool. I asked her during office hours what being a Historian was like and it seems cool. You do a lot of reading and writing about your hyper-specific niche of history. Hers was the black sea slave trade in the 13th century or something like that.

    Apparently she gets to fly out to places and read all sorts of ancient texts. Seems cool. I wonder if Archaeology would be more fulfilling. Idk. I loved her class.

      You normally need to transition to another field/industry. After my BA, I went straight to business school which was a gap degree for me as I was looking to continue my education and attain a doctorate in History. Before I graduated with my MBA, I was accepted into a doctorate program, but declined because I had money on my mind. I went to law school 15 years later and decided that it was boring (but learned enough not to give af about the legal world). I definitely don't regret my choices, I have a family, a house and make decent coin with a comfy WFH career, all because of the skills I developed over the last 20 years utilizing skills founded/honed (as a History major) as a foundation.
