Alumni play a valuable role in the life of the department through their mentorship, involvement with current students, establishment of scholarships and fellowships, and presence as role models and success stories to our current students.
Many alumni are actively involved in the professional formation of our students and in the department's pursuit of excellence by becoming mentors to students and by participating in our Board of Visitors. PSU Political Science alumni often help students obtain jobs in their field, learn about business protocol and communication, and even perfect resumes and cover letters. The winners of our outstanding alumni award illustrate the success of our graduates, who work in positions ranging from professors to lawyers to editors to financial and managment consultants to public officials.
With the establishment of our alumni Board of Visitors and mentorship program, we want to continue to expand interactions between alumni and students. Students: Please browse the site for alumni who can advise you about careers in your chosen field. Alumni: Please look at each other's methods of connecting and strengthening relationships with fellow alumni and with our students. These pages are continually developing as part of the Department of Political Science's web site. Feel free to contact us with questions regarding a particular alumnus/a or to simply offer helpful suggestions.
Make yourself at home.
