Graduate Outcomes

Carroll graduates in political science have gone on to high positions such as Governor of Montana and the U.S. Representative. For many, the path to such roles runs through law school and indeed we have a very strong record of law school placements. In the past three years, graduates of the political science department have won prestigious scholarships at the University of Montana and Wyoming law schools. Others are studying law at Georgetown, Case Western Reserve University or the University of Nevada.

A degree in political science can lead to many careers in federal, state and local governments or in the private sector. Some recent graduates are serving with organizations such as AmeriCorps, Teach for America or the Peace Corps. Others work at banks in the region or run public relations for private firms. Some work as lobbyists or on political campaigns, while many current and former students have worked for the Montana Governor or the Secretary of State. We're proud of them all!
