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). A few have even gone on to earn Ph.D.s and become college professors.

For more information on career possibilities with a political science degree, please go to the department's main office and ask to see Careers and the Study of Political Science published by the American Political Science Association.
