Political science degrees can be earned at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels and allow students to gain a better understanding of government and the internal workings of various political bodies. Although many students choose to study political science to be well informed of politics and government, they may not be sure what type of profession to pursue.
Considering the nature of political science courses, many graduates gain employment within the local, state, or national government. Some students, however, prefer to pair their degree in political science with another field of study in order to broaden their professional prospects. A juris doctor, for example, allows a political scientist to practice law with a specialty in government activities. With a degree in journalism, a political science graduate can write for a newspaper or magazine on a variety of government-related topics. Graduates may also earn a teaching degree and educate others on the field of political science.
