Long story short, I'm a college student who wants to gain political science course credit for a marketing internship.

It might be a stretch, but I need to convince the college how marketing is relevant to the field of political science.

Any thoughts/ways to win this argument?
Thanks!

Aren't all political campaigns predicated on marketing? Perhaps start with that.

Thanks for the suggestion! I'm definitely thinking about saying something along those lines.

Any other ideas? I could really use the help.

That seems like the most glaring idea, though you could even say, that post election, marketing is used to incite the public toward some case in order to pressure politicians to vote in a certain way. Every time you see, for instance, an online petition for some issue -- guns, etc. -- that's technically marketing.

All campaigns are marketing. Campaign finance reform is an issue specifically about money used for advertisements. Looking good is another marketing technique politicians use. I mean, not looking bad is important. See the Nixon v Kennedy debate, Nixon wasn't appealing, in part, because he wasn't beautiful.

PACs are another link. The media being liberal is another. It shouldn't be that hard m80
