Honours Bachelor of Arts with specialization in Classics, 2008
PhD candidate in Classics, University of Calgary
I graduated from the University of Ottawa with an honours degree in Classics in 2008. Originally, I was enrolled as in Chemistry; however, I filled my elective slots with history, languages, and myth courses until it became clear that I was in the wrong program. It was only after a year and a half in the sciences that it became clear: Classics alone could offer me the diverse range of subjects that satisfied my curiosity.
Let me begin by saying that if there is one thing I learned by studying Classics it is that it is a way of life; you don't just study Classics for a time and then move on to something else, but rather Classical Studies penetrates every aspect of your world.
Major in Classical Studies, 2012 LL.B. (London, UK; 2015)
Classics has served my academic career more than I had anticipated. I had always had the intention of studying law following my undergraduate degree, and I was aware that Classics would serve as a fascinating basis to this interest.

Studying Classics at U of O was truly one of the most enjoyable times of my life. I got my Classics degree a few years after completing another undergrad degree in Criminology. Before then, I didn’t think the word ‘academics’ and the word ‘fun’ could co-exist.
