As the editors of Value Colleges explain, "Students who are interested in a career in government, public administration, or political office can find an online degree in political science might just be their best bet." While politics is often seen more as an art than a science, modern politics is driven by data and analysis. According to the editors, "Political science focuses on politics on the international, domestic and comparative levels. Students must grasp political ideas, institutions, ideologies, processes, policies, and the art of diplomacy." Politicians themselves may come from a wide variety of backgrounds - some with no political experience or knowledge at all. But the people who make the nitty-gritty of politics work - the campaign managers, the chiefs of staff, the bill writers, the speechwriters, and more - need the grounding of a formal education.

Online programs in political science are of great help to working political operatives. As the editors note, "The only real way to break into a political career is by doing the work of politics, developing experience, and most importantly making connections." But along the way, earning an associate's, bachelor's, or master's online can make a difference. "If you're an adult with a family and a job, or if online learning is simple more accessible to you than classroom-based learning," the editors explain, "then an online political science degree can help you reach your goals while providing the flexibility that you need."

Value Colleges is independent and unbiased, ranking degree programs, providing guides for the complex financial and professional questions of college students, and offering honest facts about the potential and pitfalls of a college education.
