Many college students feel that their potential will be enhanced by a narrowly focused business education, but this is not necessarily the best strategy in an ever-changing job market. Experts agree that a solid foundation in basic skills gives individuals the flexibility to adapt to new jobs and responsibilities. A major in history develops communication, research, and analytic skills that are in great demand in business, public service, publishing, journalism, education, social work, and other fields. According to business leaders and educators, the liberal arts degree, with a major in history, is just as sure a path to success as any alternative.

Finding employment is one of the top concerns for students of historic preservation and public history. This is usually the first question they hear from their parents and friends. This answer is actually very simple. Anything. Getting a degree in history, public history, or historic preservation prepares a student to think critically, write well, and understand the complex world we live in. However, even if a degree in one of these three areas prepares a student for any sort of work, it does assume that a student is interested in using and learning about history on a day to day basis. Jobs can be found just as easily in these areas.Some examples of employment in the fields of history, public history, and historic preservation.

National History Centre View Info

National History Centre

The National History Center was created by the American Historical Association in 2002 and is dedicated to the study and teaching of history and the advancement of historical knowledge in academia, business, government, journalism, and the public at large. The Center helps historians reach out to broader audiences by providing the historical context necessary to better understand today?s events. Historians in the United States and throughout the world benefit from the National History Center, which is located in Washington, DC. Such a center, moreover, does more than serve the needs of historians. It is a forum through which historians exchange ideas with policymakers and the media. Perhaps most important, it enables historians to have the public role. The National History Center welcomes pledges and contributions of any size. Those who pledge and contribute $3,000 or more are recognized as Founders of the National History Center. All contributions are tax-deductible and can be made in installments over three years.

Historical Society of Long Beach

  • Long Beach

In 1961, the Long Beach Kiwanis Club saw the need for an active society to preserve and present the History of our city. That dream was realized in 1962, more than seventy years after the city was founded, when civic leaders active in the Kiwanis and other organizations came together to form the Historical Society of Long Beach. The purpose of the newly organized Historical Society was to collect information about the city?s history, preserve that information and present it to the larger public. Today, the Historical Society?s collection includes about 3,000 photographic images, 27,000 photographic prints and 3,000 slides. They range from fragile glass plate negatives to volatile nitrate negativesmade through the 1930s, to Polaroid snap shots and color prints. The Historical Society also has large groups of images made by local commercial photographers Lawrence Inman and the Winstead Brothers between the 1920s and 1960s. In addition, there are more than 1,300 picture postcard images, along with an extensive collection of city directories, maps and map books, real estate records, architecturaldrawings, blueprints, thousands of documents, papers, pamphlets, brochures, booklets and some three dimensional artifacts.The Historical Society is funded by the generous support of its members and bequests to establish a separate Trust Fund. Most of the Fund?s principal is designated for use as a museum building fund. Some of its income, however, is used for operating support. By 1995, income from the trust, memberships, contributions, and the sale of books and photographs allowed the Historical Society to employ an Executive Director. Today the Historical Society has three professional staff members, an Executive Director, an Office & Gallery Manager, and a Membership Manager.

Preservation Action Council of San Jose

  • San Jose

The Preservation Action Council of San Jose, founded in 1990, is a nonprofit, dedicated to preserving and promoting the continued use of historically significant resources in San Jose, and to encouraging quality new design. We believe that preserving San Jose's past encourages community pride, enhances local quality of life, benefits the environment by supporting reuse and recycling, helps increase property values, and promotes tourism and trade.Historic preservation is a development strategy that secures a community?s unique architectural and cultural heritage.It means reusing buildings of significant architectural quality or historic importance. Not every old building is historic, but if an old building is architecturally, culturally or historically important, new development should preserve the fabric of that building. It is a way of ensuring that our cities grow more beautiful,and that the past achievements of architects and developers are respected. The greenest buildings are ones that are reused.

The San Bernardino Historical and Pioneer Society is the result of the merger of two previous groups. The Pioneer Society and the Historical Society. The full name of the Pioneer Society was The Society of California Pioneers, which formed on January 21, 1888. To be a member, one had to have come to California before 1850. The list of members was impressive. The Pioneer Society included founders of San Bernardino such as John Brown, both Sr. and Jr., Nicholas Earp (father of Wyatt Earp and his brothers), W.F. Holcomb, and many others who built this valley. In 1901, they built a log cabin for the upcoming visit of President McKinley. He was unable to visit the cabin, but was moved to eulogize the Pioneers for their efforts. They built 3 more log cabins in the following ten years for various events. The last one in 1911 was set up in Pioneer Park where it remained until fire damaged it in 1973. The Historical Society?s legal name was The City of San Bernardino Historical Society and  was formed in 1977 as an outgrowth of the Bi-Centennial. The two societies merged in 1982.
