Careers in History

UWSP History alumni have taken many diverse paths. Some have gone on for Master’s and Doctoral Degrees at the University of Chicago, Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin. Many are teachers in Wisconsin public and private schools and librarians and administrators in numerous county and university libraries and archives. Hundreds of our former students are applying the skills that they learned in the study of History in local, state and federal government offices that include the various police and sheriff offices, Departments of Homeland Security and Defense, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. Still more have gone on to law school, work in small businesses in the areas of retail, insurance and consulting, as well as large corporations such as Ameriprise Financial Services, Kohl’s, Humana Insurance and General Electric Power Systems. There seem to be limitless opportunities for future study and careers with a UWSP History degree.
