Political science studies ways to effectively govern a state and examines in detail how various regulatory institutions function. Political science encompasses studies of historical and cultural factors that mutually influence how governments operate and how political processes develop. The political science discipline also reflects the connections between political and economic structures and social institutions.

Topics covered by programmes in political science include: research methods in political science, parties and political regimes, early modern political thought, international political economy, refugee crisis, or politics of capitalism.

Future political scientists will be able to understand government structures, as well as cultural and political diversity in the context of local or international politics. Students in political science will gain skills in conducting interpretive analytical reports based on data acquired during research. They will also attain an international and culturally sensitive perspective on hot topic issues related to the well-being of population, and they will develop deductive reasoning.

Graduated students can find jobs in various fields like: law, journalism and communications, international organisation, finance, polling and campaign management, community service and more.
