Careers

As a Political Science major, you may pursue a broad range of careers upon graduation. You might enter government service or public administration at the state or federal levels. You might work on the staff of an elected official, or run for office yourself. You might enter one of the foreign service agencies of the United States government, join an NGO, or join an international corporation.

A political science degree is also excellent preparation for a career in journalism, business, or media studies. As a Political Science major you also have the opportunity to select all of the  secondary education certification courses as your electives in order to become middle school or high school teacher.

With a political science degree you may also pursue law school (see our Pre-Law Program), or a graduate program in political science or a related discipline like public administration, business, journalism, international relations, or campaign management.
