Political Science Class Featured on KARE 11

 A Hamline University political science class focused on campaign management, taught by Professor David Schultz and Karla Bigham, was featured on KARE 11 as an innovative class that gives students an inside look into managing political campaigns.

“When most people say they want to work in politics, I ask them what they want to do," said Schultz. "And they say, 'Well, I don't really know what there is to do.' Many of my students haven't heard much about what kinds of jobs there are in politics."

The class uses high-impact learning practices to engage students with political campaigns. Guest speakers like Emma Greenman and Jacob Fry explain the details of different career paths. Students are also expected to supplement the course by getting involved in a campaign, and reflect on those experiences. You can watch the full video below.
