History Concentrators After Brown

History concentrators have pursued a wide range of careers in medicine, business, law, management consulting, communications and media, and the foreign service.

They now work for firms including, Google, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the National Archives, Dow Jones and Company, DreamWorks, Kaiser Permanente, Cisco Systems, Polo/Ralph Lauren Corporation, Department of the Treasury, and Algonquin Books.

Our graduates routinely get into top-10 law schools and elite graduate programs. Brown’s History Concentrators are more likely to be employed than the average Brown graduate. Over the past few years 91% of our concentrators have either been employed (75%) or in graduate school (18%) in the first year after graduation.
