A major in political science creates a solid education in the liberal arts and sciences. Our goal is to prepare graduates for a variety of careers by emphasizing the acquisition of skills in communication and analysis; and by encouraging independent thought, tolerance, and informed interest in current affairs. The ability to define a problem and contribute to its solution is actively sought by employers; just like skills in writing, research, and evaluation.
Who knows exactly what they want to do? If you do, great! Political science is perfect for careers in:
- Local Government
- State Government
- National Levels of Government
- International Organizations
- Political Campaigns
- Interest Groups
- Lobbying Organizations
What if you don't know what you want to do? That's okay. You can expect to change jobs a number of times and even to have more than one career, and political science is excellent preparation for the flexibility required to succeed in the modern employment market.
