Classical and ancient studies is the 333rd most popular degree in America, with 255 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It narrowly lost to #332 Soil Sciences.

The degree is offered at a total of 63 colleges across the nation, and is the 234th most widely offered degree. Given that classical and ancient studies is offered at 27% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America, you can be sure this is a critical degree and the skillsets acquired are likely to last for a long time.

It is also worth noting that a little under 2/9ths of colleges offering classical and ancient studies are public making it a relatively inaccessible field.

The new england produces the most classical and ancient studies graduates, largely led by Bates College, while it’s the Big Ten Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, California ranks highest, with particular help from University of California-Berkeley and University of California-Davis.

All that being said, no individual school produces more classical and ancient studies graduates than Harvard University, which graduated 24 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study classical and ancient studies). More students studied classical and ancient studies as a percentage of total students at Bates College than any other college.
