Life After Eckerd

History is probably the most flexible and far ranging of all the Humanities disciplines. It is excellent preparation for a wide variety of fields - law, teaching, business, public service, journalism, and even medicine. Increasingly, both the private sector and graduate schools are looking for applicants who have broad interests and backgrounds, rather than narrow field specialization.
