Best Political Science Colleges in New Jersey for 2018

Rank School Name Location Description   Rating
1 Princeton University Princeton, NJ

Princeton touts having “one of the largest and most intellectually diverse political science programs in the world.” And the university does a good job of backing up its claim -- a department composed of nearly 60 faculty scholars, 50 undergraduate courses offered per year (“Perfectionism and the Legal Enforcement of Morals” anyone?), and supervision of the work of more than 150 juniors and seniors who have chosen political science as their area of academic concentration.

For political science students who foresee a career in public service, Princeton can be an awesome first step. Its Scholars in the Nation’s Service Initiative, which is open to students from all majors, funds 8- to 10-week undergraduate summer internships with the federal government. You may enjoy the experience so much that you’ll later apply to the initiative’s highly competitive two-year graduate program that combines academic training with a fellowship at an executive branch department or agency. Perhaps you might work the Egypt desk in the State Department’s Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs and make recommendations about U.S. policy. Or maybe you will write a section of a Report to Congress on efforts of the Administration for Children and Families to address dating violence. What you definitely can expect is to make a difference while receiving a top-notch education.
