Career Opportunities

The sky is the limit for students graduating from Coe College with a political science major.  In this dynamic economy, we know that young people need to be able to develop new skills very quickly so as to adapt to new needs and opportunities.  Research shows that over the course of their careers, they will have many different types of jobs.  A solid training in political science and the skills of the liberal arts prepares them well for the demands of the 21th century workforce.

The majority of our graduates become employed in some area of business.  Others move directly into jobs working for government, teaching, or community service.  Some are called to careers in law and enter into law schools soon after graduation.  A number go on to graduate school in political science.  Finally, some students immediately have extraordinary opportunities to work overseas under the Fulbright Program, engage in public service as VISTA volunteers, or work in Teach for America.
