Classics Majors from University of Puget Soundf have opportunities to be part of a community of scholars, to conduct independent research, to collaborate on scholarly projects with faculty and peers and to study abroad through the University’s programs in Athens and Rome.
What does one do with a Classics major?
We like to say that Classics, as the original interdisciplinary program, prepares one for almost any career. Students develop critical and imaginative thinking by working with and writing about ancient material, while extended study of Greek and Latin stretches students’ analytical skills.
The stories of our graduates demonstrate the truth of this claim. While some of our graduates have moved on to PhD programs in Classics, Medieval Studies, or Religion, others have moved successfully into other fields such as law, business, high tech/computer programming, education, and the arts.
