Students planning to major in Political Science usually are interested in law and public policy. These careers share a common set of interdisciplinary themes that apply to public administration and government work, paralegal roles, and the practice of law. Students in Political Science at SCC have obtained internships in political campaigns, the state legislature, and in public policy organizations both in Arizona and in Washington D.C. Graduates from SCC have themselves run for office, obtained law degrees, and work in prestigious public policy organizations.
Students in the Political Science program earn the Associate of Arts, which prepares them for transfer to a four-year program. If students follow the correct transfer path, they enter transfer partner universities as junior.
