The SLU M.A. in Political Science meets a demand in the job market that arises from the increasing relevance of political science to organizations at all levels of the public and private sectors.
The SLU M.A. will prepare students for employment in government offices, political campaigns, nonprofit civic organizations, overseas teaching, national and international business, news media, and non-governmental organizations. Students in the International Affairs concentration will be prepared for careers in the foreign service, international NGOs, or international organizations like the United Nations or N.A.T.O., among many others.
Recent graduates have found jobs teaching in local colleges, working in government agencies, and serving their community through groups like Teach for America.
