What is an Associate of Arts in Political Science? Focused on the workings of government systems and political structures, this program teaches students about the factors that impact them, including those of an administrative, legislative and social nature. They may also learn how public policy is formulated and the way that laws are made. Students might take courses that cover topics such as international relations, comparative politics, United States government, introduction to statistics, vital political problems and politics of third world nations.

Graduates typically possess an in-depth understanding of governmental systems, the ability to compare systems on a global basis, and they can place the aforementioned systems within a developmental and historical framework – knowledge which may give them an edge in the job market.

The cost of obtaining an Associate of Arts in Political Science is as individual as each student, so getting a customized estimate by contacting your school of choice directly is the best route to take.

There are many different jobs available for political science majors. Marketing researchers analyze how target audiences respond to products or services.
