Studenten en docenten aan het woord

afgestudeerd in 2015Classical Studies
As long as I'm working with languages, cultures and/or in education, I'll be happy
I found this degree programme challenging and diverse. You don't only learn Greek and Latin; other aspects of life in Antiquity are covered in great detail, for example philosophy, as well as archaeology. After the Bachelor's phase, I started following the Master of Arts in Teaching programme and followed a placement at a school for a few months. Because I didn't really enjoy teaching, I switched in the first half of the second year to the Master's in Classics and Ancient Civilization, choosing the Greek and Latin Languages and Cultures track.
In my final semester I did a placement at the Groningen Archives, in the department which organizes activities for the general public. This was the most interesting department for me, given my experiences in education. I showed school pupils and students around the archives and helped them with their study projects.
I don’t know yet what I will eventually end up doing, but as long as I’m working with languages, cultures and/or in education, I’ll be happy...
I’m currently working on call for an educational publishing company and for a company that is developing a digital learning environment. Both jobs are temporary, but I’m gaining experience and it’s helping me to decide whether I want to continue in the publishing world. It’s perfectly possible that I’ll end up somewhere totally different!
