Where our Students Go

Duke Classical Studies has an excellent record of placing PhDs in North America and abroad, including leadership positions up and down the educational spectrum. While many of our alumni do enter academia and education we also pride ourselves in training our current and recent students to a variety of successful careers inside and outside of the academy.
