A major in Latin is required in the state of Ohio for licensure to teach Latin in the secondary schools. A Latin major combined with the Greek minor is also excellent preparation for graduate study in Classics or Archaeology. The study of Latin develops effective communication and cognitive skills, and graduates with degrees in Latin score higher than other disciplines on the GRE, making Latin a good choice for students who wish to pursue careers in law and related fields. Graduates with a a Latin degree have gone on to careers in law, higher education, business, nonprofits, and politics.
