What can I do with a major in Latin?
UGA Specific Information for Latin
A major in Latin provides students with an opportunity to pursue studies in Roman literature, history, archaeology, art, philosophy, and religion while concentrating on the Latin language. Latin is a major that offers opportunities for students to not only acquire language skills, but also gain scholarly tools, and an understanding of the literature, culture, and linguistic distinctives of the Latin language. Employment opportunities include teaching at the secondary level, non-teaching academic positions, museum, library, editorial work, travel and tourist industry, government positions in foreign-service, graduate school in classics, comparative literature, linguistics, history, and other fields (for University teaching positions). Other opportunities include careers in law, journalism, or business. Generally, students who select Latin further their studies in a graduate program such as an M.A. and / or Ph.D.
