Political Science is the systematic study of government, politics and political behaviour.
Political Science is the systematic study of government, politics and political behaviour, in a rapidly changing world. It studies how a society governs itself at all levels and various ideas about how it should be governed in the future. Government is a core component of power and policy structures - it authors how a society organizes itself for collective action. Political structures and governments are in constant flux and that makes this a very exciting major to choose. Politics is a central component of our culture and daily it grows more complicated due to globalization issues and world events.
