good supplementary major to go with Poly Sci?

A photo of Shomzie322 Shomzie322
Heya folks. I have applied to ottawa U, UTSG, mac and york for political science. I am wondering what a good major to do with political science would be. i intend to go to law school so my main purpose for poly sci is to have a good foundation for law but at the same time have a decent fall back if things don't follow through. My aptitudes and passions are pretty diverse with the only exception being math :P i can pull of high 80's- 90's in accounting and business sort of courses, but not anything that is hardcore math. I have seen people for example who have done poly sci and journalism and had a easier time getting into public relations in their opinion. So what sorts of majors could i combine with Poly Sci to get the most out of it?

I would suggest Economics -- but you said you didn't like hardcore math so it may not be of interest to you. Depending on what kind of politics you are interested in you could major in Canadian studies (if you like Canadian politics for example, Philosophy (political theory), any sort of regional politics (*insert region* studies) etc.

I think perhaps Criminology would be a program you would be interested. They offer the program at UTSG - not sure about other universities though.

Good luck!
