Program Overview

Political Science is a social science concerned with the study of the state, government and politics; [1] it deals extensively with the theory and practice of politics, and the analysis of political systems and political behavior. Political scientists "see themselves engaged in revealing the relationships underlying political events and conditions. And from these revelations they attempt to construct general principles about the way the world of politics works." [2]
