Political Science, in most countries, is a Bachelor of Arts and considered a Social Science. In mine, it's a Bachelor of Science and part of the Management faculty, alongside Economics, Business and Social Geography. Adding to that, in a lot of countries Political Science focusses on International Relations, which is the most overrated part of Political Science ever anyway, or Political Theory. Comparative Politics actually has its use in day-to-day life.
Can't say I specialize in anything, but I did a minor in Conflict Studies and wrote my Bachelorthesis on American third parties (the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire was my case study), which is somewhat of a pet subject of mine. American Politics is incredibly easy to research. I also love electoral systems and its effects, which again the USA is an extreme example of.
Tl;dr The American electoral system is horrible and is probably the cause of many of today's problems.
