Department of Political Science

img  

Political science is the art and science of governance. It is an important basis for humanistic studies, and has been a concern of intellectuals since the times of Aristotle. Studying political science can prepare one for various careers that require highly developed skills in both analysis and communication. Some of the career paths one can follow include political campaigns, government careers at local and national level, jo urnalism, business, law and international organizations.

Studying political science is not only useful for employment in government or local administration, but for life as well. Studying political science can deepen understanding and knowledge of the way the world works.

With this perspective, the Department of Political Science offers some undergraduate programmes.
