Government affects our personal and professional lives on a daily basis. This is particularly true in Alaska where a third of all jobs are with state, local and the federal government. So studying government (or political science) equips you to:

  • Understand and interpret current affairs in a rapidly changing world.
  • Deal with government in your future profession or business.
  • Seek a variety of jobs in government.
  • Work for various public and private interest groups that lobby government.
  • Seek election to public office.
