Like many liberal arts majors, political science allows you to enter the workforce as a person with the skills and confidence to make choices and work independently. Many political science majors go on to study law or work within law enforcement. Another career avenue is to go into public service or public relations. Most students with an advanced degree in political science will prepare for a teaching position in higher education.
There are a number of opportunities on Shoreline Community College to learn about government and policy. The Worldly Philosophers' and Dismal Scientists' Society sponsors talks from government officials, organized groups, and interested individuals throughout the year. In the recent past we've had presentations by US Representatives Jim McDermott and Jay Inslee, WA Supreme Court Justice Richard Sanders, and other public officials.
Transfer Degree: Associate of Arts Degree
Designed to provide students with a broad liberal arts background of study during their first and second years of college with an emphasis on political science. The state's two-year and four-year schools developed transfer agreements that allow students from a community college to transfer at least 90 credits (60 semester credits) to a four-year college or university. The degrees satisfy some - or all - general requirements for a bachelor's degree.
