Those who have graduated from Ave Maria with a politics major have gone on to work in Washington D.C. for members of Congress and have worked in a variety of policy organizations that study, advocate and lobby for specific public policies. Others have gone on to graduate school to continue studying politics with the goal of one day teaching in secondary or higher education, or to law school. There are a number of careers that are available for politics majors, from political consulting, working on campaigns, political advocacy, journalism and public service on the local, state, national and international levels.
