NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- OnlineSchoolsCenter.com has recently released their list of the Top 20 Online Schools for Bachelor's in Political Science—a catalog of the finest undergraduate distance education programs in the field of government.
You may view the list, along with a description of the benefits of each institution, by clicking the link below:
A bachelor's degree in political science can lead to a multitude of different areas, depending on an individual student's goals and area of concentration. However, in any case and despite one's specialization, this major leads to incredibly fulfilling careers in government agencies and nonprofit organizations and steeply trains students in the realms of communication and critical thinking, both of which are extremely desirable skill sets. A political science curriculum introduces students to the many-faceted discipline of government and government management, and, upon graduation, allows a student to carefully maneuver politically charged scenarios and environments.
This list of schools outlines some of the most outstanding schools in the country, all of which deliver finely tuned online programs in the discipline. These curricula are instructed by renowned faculty members who bring a world of experience to the virtual classroom, and introduce students to the vastly diverse area of political science. Students are given numerous opportunities to put their learned knowledge to practical use in exciting internships, study abroad programs, and interactive projects that test their ability to employ various tactics and strategies. Alumni from these schools have gone on to become elected officials, journalists, attorneys, paralegals, lobbyists, educators, and more, all due to the fact that they received a monumental education from world-class institutions.
According to lead researcher and writer, Rowan Jones, "Political science majors do not necessarily have to go on to become politicians… In fact, the major endows individuals with skills that are needed in hundreds of industries throughout the country and the world: a firm understanding of politics is beneficial in almost every employable field imaginable."
