How do I become an Archivist?

There is no one path to becoming an archivist, but you will likely need a combination of archival experience from internships and volunteer opportunities and a graduate degree in Library Science (or similar degree), Public History, or Museum Studies. You will also likely need a strong background in writing, research, and computer skills.
