I have to say that I owe my job at Santa Clara University in great part to my Classics degree.  I have a joint appointment between the Philosophy and Classics Departments here, and so the M.A. in Classics was a necessary requirement for the job.  My colleagues chose to hire me because they recognized that I had a deep and broad knowledge of the ancient world and was not just a philosopher with a dash of Greek and Latin.  My Classics training gave me that depth and breadth.
