APSA Careers Brochures

APSA introduces updated brochures on studying political science! They explain both the benefits of choosing political science as a major and the career opportunities for students who graduate with a degree in political science. The brochures are available for purchase or as a free download for departments to produce on their own at a lower cost.

These brochures were formerly published as “Political Science: An Ideal Liberal Arts Major.” We trust this new format will serve departments well as they promote their programs.

Directions for Printing

Departments who are looking to save costs are welcome to download the brochure files so that they can print and fold their own. Click on the below links to view and download the documents.

Note: The brochures are two-sided, and need to be printed with the “short-edge binding” setting. The printer should be set to print the documents in 8.5 x 11 full size (i.e., with no "fitting"). Beyond these recommendations, APSA cannot provide printing troubleshooting or support.
