Why major in Government/Political Science?

The Government Major, or Political Science Major as it is often called, will introduce you to the principal fields of inquiry in Political Science.  This major often allows you to explore in depth the links between the study of Government (Political Science) and law and justice.  The Government Major also presents you with the opportunity to assume the position of leadership in your communities, and it also presents you with the opportunity to strengthen your understanding of the relationship between political action and the quality of life within the communities in which we live and work.
 
Why Major in Government (More Specifically)?
 
A Government (Political Science) degree is an excellent preparation for government service and employment in community agencies and interest groups.  Although there is no single appropriate undergraduate preparation for law school, data compiled by the Law School Admissions Council shows that, of those applying for law school, more had earned undergraduate degrees in political science (Government) than in any other major or field.  A Government (Political Science) degree provides an excellent liberal arts undergraduate preparation for advanced degrees in criminal justice, law, political science, and public administration.
