What is Political Science?
Political Science is the study of power, authority and governance in human affairs. Our courses examine the social, economic, cultural, historical, geographical and other forces that generate conflicts both within and among societies. With a degree in Political Science you will develop an aptitude for critical debate, and use your analytical and research skills to evaluate competing perspectives and theories.
