Why Political Science?

Our majors leave Marshall with a degree that has prepared them to face their next challenge. We’re very proud that our majors go on to law schools like the University of Kentucky, WVU, and Ohio State and graduate schools like George Washington, the University of North Carolina, the University of Texas at Austin, the University of Tennessee, and Syracuse University. They get jobs with the executive and legislative branches in Charleston and Washington, D.C., work for political parties and non-profit agencies, as well as go directly into the business world. Regardless of career path, we strive to teach our majors the content knowledge, as well as the critical thinking and writing skills, that are necessary in today’s highly competitive job market.

Imagine what a degree in Political Science could do for you.
