So I’m going to college this Fall, and I know I want to study one of the aforementioned majors. However, I’m not sure which one will reap greater benefits after I graduate. Job prospects may not be too hot for these majors, but this is what I’m passionate about so don’t fight me on it. I know the two are very similar, but I’m leaning toward public policy (more exclusive major at my school, smaller classes, more technical which may be more applicable to a future career??) but political science is where I feel my real interests lie, as I’m into government affairs and all that jazz. Which of the two would look better on a resume or possibly get me a better job? I want to go into campaigns, policy analysis, government work, or something along those lines. I know involvement in politics can get me needed connections while I’m a student, but solely based on majors, which do you recommend? If anyone is studying one of these majors, insight as to what classes are like/what internships are available and stuff like that would be great, too!
Also, since I already have so many transfer credits, I have room for a double major or a minor or two. What’s an area of study that would make me more marketable for my area of interest (polysci + econ, public policy + environmental studies, polysci + public policy(???), etc)?
