I find the idea of working for the U.S. government in a security-related position interesting. I am currently thinking about going into nuclear non-proliferation, arms control, disarmament, international security studies, etc. I feel that not only will there likely be a demand for a person who can speak Arabic in this field, but also that it would be an interesting area to study.
Besides government and conflict resolution type studies, I only have a couple other choices. I find human rights compelling, but I am not sure I could make a career out of it. Cross cultural studies are the same way. I realized that after looking at the classes I could choose from, the political science ones interest me the most. Thus, my major, a combination of classes from majors including Anthropology and Nuclear Engineering, will focus on international relations and security studies. I'm getting really excited for my classes next semester!
