FOR FUTURE STUDENTS
Political Science is a great field for study and for future career possibilities. What can you do with a Political Science degree? You can do anything you want. You'll be able to analyze, write, and advance based upon your own drive. I highly encourage students to intern as part of this preparation. Ask me about possibilities.
