What Can I Do with A Degree in Political Science?
|In a nutshell, Political Science is the academic study of politics
and government. In one sense, it is an ancient discipline. It
remains central to any classical study of the liberal arts, firmly
grounded as it is in the work of Plato and Aristotle. In another
sense, because it often deals with current events and sophisticated statistical analysis, Political Science is a cutting-edge area of study. Whether you are analyzing voting patterns in a presidential campaign, the Israeli parliament, or the pros and cons of different systems of government, Political Science is timely, fascinating, and perpetually changing.
