One of the main fields classics majors can enter to continue their interest in classical studies is teaching, either at a secondary or collegiate level, and alumni from the department have gone on to teach classics, history, and English. However, alumni have also entered many other fields, including publishing, banking, college administration, government service, business administration, architecture, law, and museum work. Training in classical languages is invaluable, both for the skills it imparts and for the favorable response that it evokes from potential employers and directors of professional programs (especially law schools).
