This major offers a community of people who work together toward a better America and a better world, no matter what that looks like. As a major it offers an array of career options, the ability to study what you’re passionate about, and the opportunity of worldwide influence.

      As a student of political science, the future is ripe with career options. Career opportunities ranging from animal-rescue nonprofits to a position in the House of Representatives are all on the table. Studying political science gives insight into how the world works. Political science offers one of the vastest range of career options because it applies to and affects all fields of study.

      Political Science is one of the only majors which can guarantee a career filled with passion. Whether you are employed by the U.S. government, a non-profit, or work in public relations, political science is deeply intertwined in the issues which affect each of us day to day. Each course is designed to sharpen your oral and written skills, as well as hone your beliefs, understandings of the world, and opinions on social matters.

      Since political science is important worldwide, the career offers global opportunities.

      Studying political science also comes with certain challenges. Being a political science major means continued education, keeping up-to-date in politics, and badgering family members to register to vote (it’s a requirement of the major haha). Some believe political science isn’t important in today’s world or a worthwhile use of a bachelor’s degree, but for those of us who pursue this major, it’s all of that and more.

      A political science degree offers an abundance of career opportunities, a job working in a field you are passionate about, and a community of people who will continually challenge you to grow.
