anyone work or have a degree in politics

Just curious, since all the discussion in this forum seems to center around politics. Do any of you work in government or a related field? Do any of you have political science or law degrees?

Both professions that I have had since college have had extensive direct contact with government agencies, but no I have never worked personally for the government, but have a few politicians and government workers on all sides of the aisle in my family and friends.

I'm currently majoring in criminal justice, and starting to think about maybe going to law school after that. I'd like to work for the FBI someday. And I've got an uncle that works for the EPA.

I get the feeling that you think we shouldn't be discussing it unless we do.

I'm majoring in Political Science/International Affairs. After I graduate, I want to go to law school for Human Rights Law. That's definitely the field I want to be in, whether that involves work with a government agency or an NGO, I have no idea at this point. I still have a couple years left of undergrad. schooling, so I just have a general idea of where I want to go, eventually.
