Competition for college faculty positions is so keen that many historians with doctorates have to accept part-time positions or find work in other occupations. Historians holding only master's degrees will also face much competition. The Occupational Outlook Handbook reports that employment for historians is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2018. Historians who are employed in policy and research and historic preservation will have the best employment opportunities in the next decade.
