Alumni of our undergraduate Political Science major and the interdisciplinary International Affairs major pursue a wide range of opportunities following graduation, from law or graduate school to government employment to private sector jobs in business, the media, or the non-profit sector. Others go into service programs such as Teach For America or the Peace Corps.
Alumni from our Master of Arts programs have a similarly diverse range of options upon completion of their graduate program. Many pursue Ph.D. or law degrees, but the majority work in government jobs or in non-governmental organizations, research institutes, or consultant firms.
If you are an undergraduate alumna or alumnus, we would love to hear from you. Please contact the department chair Dr. Lowell Barrington. Likewise, alumni of our graduate programs are encouraged to contact the director of graduate studies Dr. Susan Giaimo with updates.
