Bucknell's political science program prepares you to work for change in the world. Our majors have opportunities to conduct faculty-guided research backed by the Bucknell Institute for Public Policy and the Bucknell Center for Social Science Research.
Nearly half our majors study abroad in countries like Egypt, Brazil, France and South Africa. Our undergraduates gain real-world experience through internship programs that place them on Capitol Hill and with public-service organizations around the world.
Our graduates have careers in government and nonprofits, serve in the Peace Corps, and hold jobs in law firms, banks and corporations. Wherever you want to make a difference, we can give you the tools to get there.
