classics major

<p>What can you do with a classics major? I want to be an english major to go into book publishing, but Im also interested in classics.</p>

<p>So, what kind of jobs can you get with an classics major?</p>

<p>Is anyone a classics major? Do you enjoy it? </p>


<p>I'm a classics major (well, technically Latin and Greek, but its basically the same thing) and I'm really enjoying it. I thought I was going to major in English and minor in Latin at the beginning of freshman year, but the Ovid class I took fall semester frosh year completely changed that, and I realized that Latin poetry was cooler than English poetry. Somehow, I ended up doing an intensive Greek program at Berkeley this past summer, and now I think I'm going to double major in Latin and Greek. As far as what I'm going to <em>do</em> with my majors, I have no idea. What I'd really like to do is go to graduate school, but I've heard that classics is also a good major for law school and med school (b/c most of the terminology in those areas comes from Latin and Greek). I imagine that it'd be helpful with book publishing, anything editorial, and most occupations involving literary stuff.</p>
