The Legion Project


The Legion Project is an outreach campaign to connect classicists working outside of academia.

This website is designed to be a resource for undergraduates, graduate students, and anyone else interested in the broad applications of a classical education across numerous and diverse careers.

If you or someone you know has a degree in Classics and has found success outside of academia, please let us know and we will follow up and offer to feature that person on this website. By nominating a Legionnaire, you will be helping to build a rich, variegated network of classicists that will support our discipline in numerous untold ways, and ensure its survival and relevance in the future.

To learn more about the Legion Project, read the Eidolon article that announced it and the results of the study. We also have a Legion group on LinkedIn where we share ideas on non-academic careers for classicists.
