Political Science Degrees

A Degree for All Seasons

Author: Chris Cox

"Success doesn't come to you...you go to it" -- Marva Collins

Truer words may never have been spoken. Success, like anything, belongs to the man or woman who takes charge; to that driven person who makes a decision to act...then captures the goal, the dream, the objective...with unfailing, unflinching commitment.

Schools and the quality of education in America run the gamut - from barely adequate to off-the-charts superb. For people demanding maximum success, nothing less than superb will do, while nothing short of Associates, Bachelors or Doctorate degrees, will suffice. Equally important to whatever degree chosen, is its coming from an accredited program, college or university.

Political Science "Unplugged"

Political Science is according to the Princeton Review, "timely, fascinating and perpetually changing."

Boiled-down to its essence, political science develops critical thinking and communication skills along with a comprehensive grasp of history, cultures and people.

Possess a deep desire to communicate with the masses? Poli-Sci could be the major for you. Many a news anchor earned a political science degree before ever walking into a TV studio or radio station. And while garden-variety politicians may or may not have Political Science degrees, increasingly future office holders will belong to those that do.

Regardless of the exact career track chosen, Political Science is cutting-edge. From voter-pattern studies to presidential campaign management ...from critical analyses of the British Parliament to the inner-workings of international diplomacy, Political Science is according to the Princeton Review, "timely, fascinating and perpetually changing."

And increasingly, it's well-paying. Degrees in Political Science lead to a seemingly endless array of career choices, including:

*Teaching *Political Analysis *Government Intelligence *Sales *Consulting *Marketing *Paralegal *Campaign Management *Politics, office holding

Political Science majors, across a broad spectrum of career choices, earn on the average $55,000 a year. Intelligence specialists holding advanced degrees, skew even higher, with top wage earners reaching the $71,000 mark. State office holder salaries vary state to state, while the rank and file on Capital Hill do even better. United States Senators, for example, pulling in close to $175,000 annually.
