During the past 15 years, the placement profile
shows that most Xavier Political Science students
attend law schools in Louisiana, Texas,
Georgia, California or Washington, D.C.
Many of our students with a concentration in
international affairs, attend graduate schools.
Some do so with funding from a Pickering Fellowship
or via the International Institute of
Public Policy, or, more recently, the Charles B.
Rangel Fellowship program. To give an indication
of the variety of areas our graduates enter,
here are three examples: 1) One of our 2001
graduates, is pursuing a Ph.D. in Political Science,
with a focus on women in international
development.; 2) Another graduate (2002),
completed a Master’s degree in May 2004 and
serves the State Department as a foreign service
officer. She began her overseas post in Addis
Ababa, Ethiopia in February 2005; 3) A third
political science graduate completed study at the
University of Michigan and has joined the international
private sector, employed by one of the
powerhouses of international business.
