"I'm interested in Classics, but what can I do with a Classics degree?"

 

 

Yes, you absolutely can!  Talk to me and ask if there are any follow-up instructions that you might miss by handing it in early, but in most cases it should be no problem.

(This question is most often asked by someone who is going to be out of town, or who has many other assignments due in the same week.)

 

 

 

 

No.  Your textbook has a vocabulary section which is an ideal reference, whereas a full dictionary contains words which you may not yet have learned how to use properly.
