A bachelor’s degree in Classics prepares students for all sorts of careers.

Potential employers in business look favorably upon Classics students because they understand that Classics majors have developed strong analytic skills, both through the study of the primary languages (Greek and Latin) and through the study of Classics in English translation.

Furthermore, many prestigious professional schools look upon schooling in the Classics with greater favor than upon schooling in preprofessional programs (such as in business or in journalism). Accordingly, students graduating from classics departments throughout the country have notable success in schools of law, medicine, and business.
