Political Science

Regulations effective September 1, 2017.

As a discipline, Political Science is very much concerned with the study of power, authority, and governance in human affairs. In today’s world, forms of power, authority, and governance are changing rapidly and becoming increasingly complex. Governance is no longer confined to the nation-state but involves a range of institutions—public, private, and non-governmental—involved in the process of governing and steering a society at the international, national, and sub-national levels.
