Political Science: Internships and Careers
A degree in political science prepares students for a variety of careers in the public and private sectors. Students may be employed in national, state and local government agencies; international government and public agencies; fields such as criminal justice, environmental protection, consumer affairs or urban planning; political consulting and research firms; nonprofit organizations and citizen action groups; and public policy analysis.
Cal U prepares students to enter the workforce with knowledge, integrity, character and experience. With the help of the Career and Professional Development Center, faculty will connect students to potential employers through networking events, job shadowing opportunities, on-campus recruiting, job and internship fairs, and organizational visits.
