According to the University of Arkansas, "The Department of Political Science offers a major leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree, three combined majors, also leading to Bachelor of Arts degrees, and two minors, one in legal studies and a second interdisciplinary minor in urban planning. Political science is the traditional undergraduate degree choice for those considering law school. It is also ideal preparation for a career in government service, including internationally-oriented paths like the foreign service, intelligence, and foreign aid/development agencies, and domestic political careers like consulting, research, polling, and policy/campaign staff."
