Political science is one of the most popular majors at Middlebury, and our majors take a variety of different career paths.

After Middlebury, many majors pursue graduate degrees in law, policy, business, or government. Others join the Peace Corps, Teach for America, or a nonprofit group. Our alumni have gone on to careers in education, policymaking, civil society, law, and many other fields.
