Working in the non-profit sector
Political science graduates are well suited for careers with non-profit organizations. Non-profit organizations (e.g. the Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, Bread for the World, International Aid, World Vision, etc.) rely heavily on private financial contributions and generally provide “street-level” assistance for those in need. These organizations (sometime labeled “third sector” or “non-governmental organizations) are rapidly growing in numbers and importance as people recognize their ability to meet human needs both domestically and internationally.
