What can you do with a Political Science major?

By admin ~ May 8th, 2011 @ 5:18 am
I’m thinking about switching my major to Political Science, but I don’t know what kind of career I would need to pursue beyond that. Would I be limited to becoming a lobbyist or a politician or a campaign manager or something along those lines?

    The only truly great political job you can get is as a diplomat in a nice, safe country. Otherwise, being in politics or even analyzing politics can be very grueling and I’d only advise it if you are really, really interested in political matters. In that case, I’d also suggest political analyst for some news corporation as a decent job.

    yep. it’s a useless degree. what are you best at ? what do you like to do ? what can you see yourself doing for the rest of your life – or at least long enough to pay off your loans ?!
    it’s a difficult decision, but don’t waste your time or money on something useless or unwanted !

    Law School, Teach

    You could do almost anything in the government or teach, and many law schools like to accept students with a background in political science. Major in what you most want to study, not what you feel you must do.

    If I were you, I would study accounting or finance. I majored in history and now applying to law schools. I’ve been out of school for two years. The only thing I got is general knowledge. Especially if you don’t want to do grad. school, then study business. It’s more practical and can open doors to major companies. You can always minor in Political Science. Good luck.
