What careers might one be able to ensue upon completing a Bachelors in Arts with a focus in Art History?

Asked by whitetigress (3129points) December 7th, 2011

The only thing I could think of at the moment, and I haven’t given it a ton of thought, is that one might be able to become a Art History professor.

You can’t be a professor with just a BA, you would need to continue your education.

Aside from trying to get some experience in a gallery, as @JLeslie said, you really need to continue your education if you want a job specifically related to what you’ve studied. Where I’m living, a degree isn’t worth much at all now.
You could always do a hDip and try to get a job teaching
