Jobs & Professional Development
As the primary professional association for historians in the United States, the AHA serves as the main clearinghouse for information about jobs, careers, and employment for the historical discipline. These services range from advice for the history major pondering their first job out of college to advice, information, and job listings for history PhDs.
Career Diversity for Historians
The AHA seeks to expand the occupational presence of humanists beyond the academy by broadening the professional options that students commonly imagine for themselves and aspire to. Broadening employment prospects for holders of doctorates in history will at once enhance the employment opportunities of PhD historians and expand the influence of historical thinking across society.
