Future careers

Many employers today realize that a degree in Classical Studies and the classical languages bear witness to the intellectual acumen of the student. Since ours is a challenging discipline, asking the student to examine many different aspects of a culture, the possession of a degree in Classical Studies testifies that a student has the ability to respond intelligently to the demands of complex modern society.

Employers know that our students have the capacity for literate communication with the general public, for acute analysis of complex problems, and, most of all, for mental liveliness. See what some potential employers think about a degree in Classical Studies.
