The job market for historians is generally broad and varied. Graduates are especially sought after for positions at universities and institutes or in teaching and research of history. Jobs in archives or in the cultural fields, for example in exhibition planning or in art and culture management, are obvious choices, as well.

Other career opportunities can be found in schoolbook and textbook editing, in publishing houses (e.g. in editing), in radio, TV and newspaper editorial teams, in PR and advertisement agencies, in libraries and archives, in international organisations as well as in the cultural sector. In this context it may also play a role which second component the students have chosen within the Joint Bachelor of Arts. With additional business qualifications, they can find employment in business enterprises (e.g. in marketing and distribution or in human resources).

It is important to start early in the degree programme to gain practical work experience in relevant organisations. This way students can promote themselves as competent professionals in practice and make important professional contacts. The likelihood of finding a good position is definitely heightened if the student is flexible when it comes to commuting or even moving abroad. Good English language skills are particularly important when it comes to the international job market.
