Hello, I'm Bruce Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz Strategic Staffing. You can find me on the web at www.hsstaffing.com. What kind of career and salary can you get with an undergraduate degree in Political Science? Political Science is a great foundation for a multitude of jobs. The ones that immediately come to mind are public relations, media relations, communications, government affairs, community relations, public policy, being an analyst and a researcher. The beauty of all of these professions is two-fold. First, they exist in both the non-profit and for a profit sectors and second, they all have great career trajectories. As for salary, depending on the sector, in today's economy, you're probably be looking at a starting rate of between 35 and 50 thousand dollars. But, by the end of your career, you'll be earning six figures and possibly very nice six figures. But, one word of warning; don't ignore benefits. Health insurance and pension are real money even if you don't see it in the bank. So, don't focus just on your take home pay. Good luck and thank you for watching.
