|Five NMU history majors interned at the Marquette Regional History Center this summer. They took part in a special tour of the historic cottage and grounds of Ives Lake, originally developed by Upper Peninsula pioneer J.M. Longyear.|
At Northern, we strongly believe in learning by doing. With guidance from caring, engaged instructors, you will be challenged to do high-quality research, improve your communication and quantitative skills, and develop an understanding of societal and individual factors that motivate human action—all skills desired by employers in many fields.
The traditional path of a history graduate is a professional who researches and analyzes the past, such as an archivist, biographer, curator, educator, genealogist or historian. History graduates also often find employment as bankers, FBI/CIA agents, genealogists, lawyers, legislative aides, librarians, managers, politicians, research analysts, personnel directors, sales representatives and writers—or other positions that require good communication and research skills.

You might do in-depth research for the NMU and Central Upper Peninsula Archives and the Center for Upper Peninsula Studies. You could present historical programs and performances for area youth programs, including the U.P. Children’s Museum.
