Whether you're considering a career in law, public policy, government administration, campaign management, advocacy or the private sector, a political science degree is excellent preparation. It's a major that will challenge you. Our faculty will develop your ability to think critically, assess situations and develop responses to meet any challenge. They will teach you the theories, institutions and processes of politics and government and will inform you about a wide range of political systems: local, state, national and global. You'll learn outside the classroom, too, with for-credit internships and research opportunities in New York City, Washington, D.C. and beyond.
