Is there any scope in History? I am studying History but still do not know what are my options in this line? Please help me.
There are definite scopes in History if one is interested. Only thing you have to remember is History is a purely academic profession. So you do well only if you have a Master degree and better if you have a Ph.D. You can specialize in various interesting areas in Ph. D and pursue a good career. Some of the fields in which you can specialize are – Archeology, Numismatics, Epigraphy, Archival Studies, Museology, Egyptology, Muslim Art & Architecture, Roman Empire, and American History. Depending on the specialization you will do, you may get a job in - Archeological Survey of India; Government funded research organizations like Council for Historical Research; nationally important libraries and documents centre like National Archives as an Assistant Archivist; Museums as Technical Assistants, Assistant Keeper, etc.; colleges and University department. In Archeological Survey of India, you can get a job as Epigraphic Assistant, Curator, Technical Assistant, Archeologist depending on your specialization. In research organizations, you can get a job as a technical Assistant, Research Associate, Research Fellow, Archivists, etc.
