Classical studies alumni are equipped with the ability to think incisively about written documents and material records, synthesize evidence across disciplines, and express themselves effectively both orally and in writing.

Trinity is proud of the achievements of its alumni and likes to keep up with their work, life, and ongoing educational experiences. If you graduated with a degree in classical studies, feel free to contact the department and let us know what you've been up to.

Bernard O’Connor '10

Bernard says he's "hooked on living in the Middle East." Currently, he is teaching English in Jordan, and before that he was in Syria. His plan is to stay in the region until he feels completely confident in his Arabic language abilities. While his colloquial Arabic is already at a near-native level, the formal/classical register "still eludes me."
