Awesome question Tanya!! To answer your question in one word, yes (there are tons of jobs other that the ones you mentioned). I was an International Affairs major in undergrad and wasn't completely convinced that law or politics was for me and here I am a consultant with PricewaterhouseCoopers just a few months after having graduated. While some people may thing that consulting is only for business majors, accounting majors, or finance majors, this isn't the case. Consulting and many other career fields don't exactly care what your undergraduate major was. Skills like writing, public speaking, communication, and collaboration are all skills consultancies look for in candidates which are skills well honed and developed as a political science major.
Political Science is a great degree as it provides you with enormous flexibility when applying to jobs. You're not overspecialized in a particular field and this flexibility is a hidden blessing. Leveraging those skills you've developed (writing, speaking, and team work) may seem like nothing, but for employers they are key skills to have.
