Careers with Classics 

The Department of Ancient Classics and Careers Service at Maynooth University joined forces to bring about our annual Careers with Classics event, which commenced in September 2021.

Each year, a panel of international speakers share their professional journey after graduating in Classics with an audience of current and prospective students of Maynooth University, as well as any Irish third-level institution, pupils of secondary schools, and guidance counsellors that may be interested. This is an exciting opportunity to meet Classics graduates who share their lived experience and career path into the professional world. Classics students pursue a variety of careers and can work in local government, cultural organisations, heritage organisations including museums, libraries, business organisations and more. All these careers require the skills of research, analysis, and writing, for which a Classics degree is excellent preparation.

The event takes a closer look at some of the more frequetly asked questions in relation to skills and opportunities:

  • What skills does a degree in Classics provide?
  • Which fields of employment require these skills?
  • Where do Classics graduate go to work?
