The Students

We are looking for curious and energetic students who are passionate about politics.

Political science students regularly win campus-wide and national honors. For example, in the last several years they have won such prestigious national awards as Watson fellowships, CORO fellowships, and a Truman scholarship.

Many of the department’s students continue their education after graduation, a large percentage going to law school and others to M.B.A. and Ph.D. programs. Our most distinguished students are admitted to top law schools (e.g. Columbia, Harvard, NYU) and top graduate schools in political science (e.g. Michigan, Stanford). Several graduates take jobs in Washington or in Albany, while others go on to the Peace Corps, Teach for America, and the Foreign Service.

But many go on to careers that have nothing to do with politics – Hollywood writers and producers, health care administrators, real estate developers, and poets.
