Graduate School Information

The intellectual opportunities afforded Political Science majors make them excellent and successful candidates for graduate and professional school. After graduation many of our majors choose to pursue graduate study in public policy, international development, foreign affairs and law school. Others choose to work for service organizations, business or government. Many work for a year or more before deciding whether to attend graduate of professional school.

If you are considering graduate school be sure to discuss your interests with a faculty member to help you ascertain which school and program is best suited to your career goals.
