What career pathways can I follow with a Political science degree?
I’m planning on majoring in political science but am unsure of what I want to do with this degree. I know I can go into law but I’d like to know about other career pathway options as well.
Public Relations Specialist

College Student Leadership and Activities Officer
These are just a few to name
I would encourage you to consider which level of politics is most interesting to you: city, county, state, or federal. Also think about what first interested you about the major: television show, news, current climate, local elections, something else. Then consider areas in which you'd like to research and intern. You can intern for credit or no credit, either way both are very valuable in helping you narrow down what you want to do by giving you direct experience. Some students take on more than one internship 1 per semester) so they can compare experiences. Good luck with your decision.
