Alumni Stories

Students who complete the Classical Studies post-baccalaureate program go on to pursue fascinating careers. While many enter doctoral studies after completing the program, some begin master's degree programs in classical studies or philosophy to continue their preparation for PhD work. Others enter terminal masters programs in preparation for teaching careers or curatorial work, or begin professional careers immediately after completing the program.
