There are well known embeddings of GL_n (q) in Sp_2_n (q) and GO+_2_n (q), as well as an embedding of GL_n (q^2) in GU_2_n (q). These give embeddings of Singer cycles of GL_n (q) and GL_n (q^2) in the corresponding classical group, which we call linear Singer cycles. In this thesis, we classify the overgroups of such a Singer cycle in these groups.
