Political science is the study of politics and government on both a large and small scale. Political scientists examine crucial questions such as:
- Why are some governments stable and others unstable?
- How do individuals and groups gain and maintain power?
- What factors cause wars or contribute to a peaceful resolution of conflicts?
- How do public policies affect citizens' lives and how can citizens affect those policies?
- How do factors such as race, class, religion, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation affect people’s political attitudes and behavior?
