A degree in Political Science is expected to significantly boost both students’ ability to pursue postgraduate educational opportunities and improve their future career prospects. Graduates with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science earn a median annual income of $64,000, outpacing the median earnings of $61,000 for all graduates with a bachelor’s degree as well as their counterparts with a general Social Sciences degree, who have marked an average of $53,000.

Furthermore, the study revealed that 48.7% of college graduates with a Political Science degree go on to obtain a graduate degree, where the same is true of 41.2% with a general Social Science degree. For those students who complete a graduate degree, the median income for Political Science majors reaches $96,000, outpacing the average of $87,000 median income for majors in other social sciences who have obtained graduate degrees.
