Political scientists may be found in a variety of workplaces. Of course, professors and graduate students teach and do research within the ivy-covered walls of universities. Within the skyscrapers of big cities, many graduates of political science programs are employed as policy analysts, writers, and commentators, and find themselves working in bustling offices or television studios. Yet others are called to public service and may spend their time within the halls of government. Finally, those who work for private corporations may have their workplaces located on placid suburban campuses.
