I was also a Political Science Major and I wish I had minored or gotten a second degree in Communications. I think it is hugely beneficial to learn how to communicate with others, especially in the field of politics. Politics is all about people - it is about speaking with the public and learning what they are looking for from our government. Learning how to properly and effectively and efficiently communicate is a huge asset in this field.
Nicole recommends the following next steps:
- Enroll in a communications class
- Enroll in a public speaking class
- Enroll in a psychology class to learn more about how people think and communicate
