Alumni of the Classics Department are examples of the versatility of a classical education. The five students represented here were all graduate students before the classical curriculum had been done away with. Though all of them graduated with some form of Classics graduate degree, none of them became Classics professors. With careers in Philosophy, Agriculture, Law, History, and Botany, they collectively show that the classical curriculum fosters further learning. You don't have to study Classics for the rest of your life; the classical curriculum just helps students obtain the skills to learn any subject in school.
