Model UN and Political Science Honor Society
Political science students also have the opportunity to participate in Model UN and get involved in our award-winning chapter of the national political science honor society, Pi Sigma Alpha.
Hartwick political science graduates go on to earn graduate degrees in political science or allied fields such as public administration. Some find employment working for members of Congress, other government agencies, and they work as teachers, journalists, and business people, among other careers. A number of Hartwick political science majors attend law school and go on to practice law in a variety of fields.
