    Anyone here with a degree in History or Political Science? What did you do with those degrees?

    I am in college for Health Information Management and it was not even in the top 10 of things I wanted to go in to but it offered a chance at a good career etc...some of these classes are so asinine and over the top ON TOP of the fact they are for them to profit off of me and NOT something I will use in my career I am considering switching to Healthcare Management OR switching schools and going for a bachelors in History or Political Science but I am worried about what jobs I could get in those fields.

    This is what a nephew who is doing that told me last year, after a career in the Navy.

    History or Government means a teaching degree in HS or JHS, or a Masters at least to being adjunct in two or more colleges near you.

    If you do a Masters in one, do 18 grad hours in the other, and you will be hired FT within one to three years of adjunct.

    Cut it down by a year if you do History/English or Government/English.

    Hide your fascism in interviews.

    History and Poly Sci degrees tend to go into academia (especially history).

    He needs to stick with his natural abilities and go into waste management. The OP is a piece of trash.

    History or Government degree = / = "teaching" degree. It's a typical pathway toward teaching certification, but not a degree. Depending on the state you're in a bachelor's and passing a series of tests is all that's needed for a temporary certification (this was the path I followed, but not a history or poly sci degree). You then have to take lots of training sessions that supplement your lack of an education degree.

    Teaching could be a very rewarding job for you. Especially History. The kids nowadays are really getting hosed when it comes to learning about history; and government. You could make a positive impact, and possibly counter act some of the liberal, union backed agenda. But your going to be surrounded by shitstains for coworkers. Not beating them to death just might prove to be the most challenging aspect.

    Do you realize who you were talking about? He couldn’t open a door marked push/pull.
