As a “political scientist”, what is your contribution to society compared to those of other professions, the UN? It is a very interesting major, much like English is. But, it is not practical, and no one in the legal field is going to give a shit if you have a BA or BS in Political Science. Guess who else wont care, the UN, the State Department, and the rest of the Federal Government. They want Econ majors.


DoD cares thats how I got my job.



Public ivy? UVA, UM? There is the reason, I'd suspect. See how many people with political science degrees from Binghamton or MSU work for the State Department. I'd wager none. Also, DoD is the biggest employer in the USA. So, there’s that.

What kind of work? I am genuinely interested to know. I looked into that. But many required military experience.


I don't want to get to into it but it is part of the intel community. I do have military experience but with how competitive the job I got is they told me I wouldn't have gotten it without my degree/ GPA


If you were military I don't think your GPA would factor in so much. Having a degree + EXCELLENCE in the military seems to be what its all about.
