What major did you decide on in order to get you in the position you are in today?

I've seen that Law, Political Science, and History are three recurring majors for the Government careers, I was curious what exactly it was that you had to do to become a successful piece of that workforce. Careers in specific would be: Political Consultants, Municipality Governing positions etc. Thank you for your response

Hello. My Master's degree is in Urban Studies, and my undergraduate is in Business Administration, minor in Economics. I currently work for a national laboratory, supporting the US Department of Energy. I work on the research side of the government sector. If you want to remain on the policy side of government work, I'd say political science, communications, business or public administration. I hope this helps!
