Best Colleges for Classics

Majoring in classics does not provide a direct career path like pre-professional fields of study. Rather, it produces graduates who thrive in the areas of critical thinking, research, writing, and communication, skills that prepare them to excel in just about any area. A glance at where Georgetown’s Classics majors end up professionally reveals everything from screenwriter to politician to surgeon to entrepreneur. Some who master Latin and Greek continue on and become the next generation of academics, pursuing Ph.D.’s in the Classics or a related subject. No matter which path you choose, the following schools will help you get there.
