With approximately 50 majors and 35 graduate students, the department is among the largest Classical Studies programs in the public university system, and it is designed to prepare its students for careers in the 21st century, with FSU Classics alumni currently holding positions in diverse fields including university academia, museums, professional archaeology, secondary education, and law.
