The Political Science major prepares students for successful careers in political science-related fields, including academia, government, law, or international affairs. Students also master a specific core of discipline-based knowledge and an understanding of their civic responsibilities in a global community. The department provides faculty mentoring through academic advisement as well as through career counseling and exposing our students to practical political experience.
Beyond the Classroom
Students have a wide array of opportunities for research, internships, conferences, and networking beyond the classroom that give them an advantage to prepare for life after W&J.
Careers and Internships
Graduates of the Political Science program at W&J have gone on to hold positions including federal judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, state supreme court justice, and Fulbright scholar.
