Careers for Classicists

Through extensive research into the employment outcomes of Classics graduates, we have been able to show that classicists go on to success in a variety of high-earning career fields, including law, policy, finance, and technology. In an effort to change the conversation around Classics and career outcomes, we have launched a variety of career networking initiatives for Classics degree holders working outside of academia.


The Legion Project 


The Legion Project is an outreach campaign to connect classicists working outside of academia. Visit our Legion webpage to learn more.



Nexus is a social platform for former Classics majors outside of academia, providing several networking opportunities. Learn more about Nexus here.


The Bridge Program


The Bridge Program is a career mentoring initiative that advises and supports classicists as they seek to transition to fulfilling careers beyond the professoriate. Learn more about the Bridge Program on our website.
