The political science major is designed to provide students not only with a broad education in political and other social sciences but also with the analytical skills essential in many professions. The flexibility of this program makes it a logical choice for those who wish to sample a wide variety of courses within the political science discipline.
Students wanting to enter politics, journalism, business or teaching; to pursue graduate studies in political science; or to prepare for employment in international agencies concerned with foreign affairs normally choose the general political science program.
Graduates in political science pursue careers in a range of industries, excelling in jobs that demand deep knowledge of international and domestic affairs, local government systems, communication and law.
