Description

Ask current students majoring in Political Sciences questions about academics, campus life, and more.

Politics sure is a hot topic in the news right now - especially in this election year. But what's it like to be a political science student? In this Q&A session, we'll ask a panel of current Political Sciences majors from a variety of colleges about their experiences in their field. Webinar attendees will also get to participate in the second half of the Q&A.
