About the Programme
Political Science seeks to understand the practice of politics and the exercise of power from domestic, international, and comparative perspectives. We address some of the fundamental problems facing human society: war and peace, authoritarianism and democracy, economic development and inequality, and environment degradation. We do so by examining political ideas, ideologies, institutions, policies, processes, and behaviour, as well as groups, socio-economic classes, governments, diplomacy, law and strategy.
The coursework covers the entire spectrum of six sub-disciplines of Political Science including Political Theory, Indian Political Thought, International Relations, Comparative Politics, Indian Politics and Public Administration.
