Advise governments, organizations or businesses on political issues. Continue on to law school and become a federal prosecutor or litigation attorney. Serve as a campaign staff member in the next presidential election cycle.

As part of your studies, you will work closely with highly qualified faculty and gain an ample understanding of the political forces that shape our lives. You will develop critical thinking, research and communication skills, as well as acquire sophisticated knowledge of political behavior, governmental processes, constitutional principles, the law, and global affairs. Early on, you will develop professional skills through world-class internships, research projects, co-curricular activities and travel opportunities. These practical, hands-on applications will enhance your overall learning experience, broaden your perspectives, and provide you with valuable preparation for a wide variety of careers. As a political science major at BVU, you will hone your analytical and problem-solving abilities and become a more socially responsible and active citizen. Because the political science major complements a variety of other programs, including English, public administration, science or business, many students often declare it as a second major.
I've worked with professors whose brilliance came in the form of inexhaustible capacities to care and heal a world much in need of both things. I want to pass along to my students as much of this as possible.
