Careers in Political Science

Political science graduates go on to work in a variety of fields. Many have gone on to law school and have pursued successful careers as attorneys and judges. Others have gone on to work in politics here in Fresno, in Sacramento, in Washington, D.C. and even for international organizations around the world. Several have been elected or appointed to public offices (see our list of notable alums on our home page). A few have even gone on to earn Ph.D.s and become college professors.

We offer four optional career tracks in our Department.  If you are interested in potentially pursuing a career in one of the following areas, click on the links below for a list of courses to choose from to help prepare you along with career possibilities in each area.
