Earning a degree in classics is a great way to get a general humanities education.  Employers want to hire imaginative and creative people who can understand and explain concepts and abstractions and who are good writers and close readers - just the skills students develop while studying classics.

A classics minor supplements well a degree in many fields, including those such as history, anthropology, and art history. Many who have studied classics at the University of Kansas in recent years have gone on to law school and medical school, as well.
