Careers with a history degree
Answered

I was wondering what careers I could get if I got a history degree. And if it would be helpful to get a history for a specific part of the world like East Asia. I am learning Korean and am wondering what careers Korean would be helpful for and if it is a language even worth learning.

Historian, journalist, museum curator, archivist, archaeologist, professor or teacher, lecturer, librarian, etc. Yes, Law is an option but it would require a J.D. degree, you could technically have your undergrad major in anything.

Korean would be helpful for foreign language careers, like foreign service officer, foreign language teachers/professors, or jobs in South Korea, for example.

The only lucrative career I can think of is Law.
