Will Rogers once described the political process by asserting, "Those who are in want to stay in and those who are out want to get in, and that's about all there is to the game." The faculty in the Government Department takes a more complex view. Government encompasses a wide spectrum of subfields of political science, such as comparative politics, international relations, public policy, and constitutional development.

The politics, economics, policy and law major, as well as the government minor is appropriate for students planning to enter the fields of law, politics, business, or management, as well as for those who wish to pursue graduate work in political science. Mills graduates in government have pursued a variety of careers, including university teaching, the foreign service, law, and management in both the private and public sectors.

Mills College’s innovative Bachelor’s-to-Master’s Accelerated Degree Programs allow you to earn a master’s degree in one additional year of study. Combining a master’s degree with a liberal arts undergraduate education prepares you for career success and increased options upon graduation. Mills students in this major should consider one of these options:
Business Management (MBA)
Teacher Education
Interdisciplinary Computer Science
Public Policy
