What major is similar to Political Science that I might find at another college?

Hey everyone! I'm really into Political Science but the college I'm looking at doesn't have it as a major. Do you guys know any similar fields of study that might overlap with my interests? I'm open to exploring related majors but I don’t know where to start. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

It’s quite common for colleges to offer majors that overlap with Political Science, as the concepts and skills in this field are multidisciplinary. Look into majors such as International Relations, which focuses on the interactions between countries, Public Policy, which deals with the creation and implementation of government policies, or Political Economics, which explores the relationship between politics and the economy. Additionally, consider looking at a major in Sociology, which can give you insight into societal structures that shape political systems, or a Legal Studies program if you're interested in law and its connections to politics. Check the course catalog of the college to see how the content of these majors aligns with your interests in Political Science.
