Choosing and Applying for Programs


Beyond Academia

Some Classicists choose to set their career-aims outside the academic world even after beginning or completing graduate work. The Paideia Institute in 2015 formed the Legion Project in order to facilitate networking for Classicists who take their Ph.D.s into nonacademic endeavors. In December 2018 they premiered the Legion Project Bridge Program, "a career-placement initiative that advises and supports Classicists as they seek to transition to fulfilling careers beyond the professoriate."
