Political Science VS International Politics?

I can't decide which would be better. To give slightly more context, I have hopes of commissioning as an officer and traveling the world, after that I hope to return and start a career in politics, eventually becoming a member of Congress.

It's a wild dream yeah but that's my dream plan so far. However, I can't decide which would be a more appropriate major :(

    0 difference. Looking at the major requirements, which one are you more comfortable with? Which one do you see yourself doing better in? Go with that one.

    Yeah, this doesn't matter. The difference is probably only a few classes (3-4) anyway, and the core classes are likely to be the same. So choose whichever one looks more appealing to you.

    "So choose whichever one looks more appealing to you."

    That's what I can't choose

    So don't choose yet. If you're applying to college and you have to put one down, flip a coin. Then take a few classes when you get there and make your decision after you've had to put them down.

    Look at the course catalog for the school(s) that have both majors. What are the differences between them?
