Okay, I need my academic adviser for Smith right now:
- How do I take both Latin and Greek in a way that will make most sense?
- Can I double-major in English and Classics without dying?
- Will I ever get a job in either of those fields?
Well, what do you want to do? You could be a Latin teacher, or you could work in a museum, or something along those lines. Before you declare a major, consider: is this actually something you want to devote your life to studying? I’m majoring in Art History because I genuinely want to work in museums.
The thing about majors and jobs I’ve noticed is that your field of study doesn’t have to correspond exactly to your career. I’m an Art History maj, but this summer I’m working in education reform. The point of the liberal arts is to stretch your mind and teach you how to think. The only time your major has to be part of your career is in things like engineering or pre-med or the like. My mom was an English major and now works on Wall Street (she went to graduate school for her business degree, but still). As long as you can sound intelligent in an interview, make up some bullshit for why a Classics major is relevant to communications or some shit, you should be good.
Do you have to take Latin and Greek at the same time? For your own sake, stagger them a little.
