So, the first question you need to ask yourself is?
What course do I want to study?
Most Masters programmes require that you have undergraduate background in the course you want to study
So if you studied History? Look out for Humanities, Arts-related programmes

Anyone doing a humanities degree will learn far more from every hour spent in a library, or reading at home, than they will from an hour in a lecture. A lecture might spark their interest, it might give them an outline to fill, but they will need to take that further themselves.

Humanities is a lagging indicator. It's a read-only field of study. It won't influence the course of wars, economic development, medicine, travel, commerce, energy, etc. in any material way unlike technology and engineering. It's a luxury good, consumed by a certain social class.
