The Political Science undergraduate program is designed to enable its students to grasp the ever-changing world from an international perspective, with its political, social and economic dimensions. The program covers a wide spectrum from macro-level power relations to micro-reflections of power in daily life. Political Science, as two closely related disciplines, is focused on the critical analysis of political and managerial issues. The discipline of Political Science studies the processes by which resources and values are distributed and discussed in a political system. It focuses on concepts such as power, legitimacy, social class and nation on the one hand, and formations such as the state, government, political parties and international organizations on the other.
