What kinds of jobs can you get with a political science degree?

Our students are also qualified to work outside of Alaska in numerous public and private sector jobs. Political science provides the best and broadest understanding of the formation, application and change of law, as well as research techniques and standards of argumentation essential to legal practice. Our majors have been admitted to the nation's top law schools. A solid understanding of local, national, and international politics will benefit any student throughout his or her career. Ultimately, what you do with political science is up to you, but a background in political science will benefit you throughout your life by giving you the analytical tools to understand and act on the politics affecting you.
