While students consider the classes and careers that await
them, colleges and universities strive to prepare and equip their students for
their futures. To help students and schools, APSA offers a variety of print and
online career materials. APSA has updated some material, and we look forward to
including more resources on this page.
Attention Departments! APSA has made all of these career resources available online. Now, departments and mentors have a printable resource—the APSA Careers Flyer—to present to students interested in learning more about political science. This flyer lists information and links for materials and membership benefits, and departments are welcome to print this and provide it to students.
