Political Science

Political Science is one of the basic Social Sciences together with Economics and Sociology. As a discipline, Political Science extends from political theory and political ideas to a wide variety of political civic activities as well as the activities of various political institutions.Political Science is primarily concerned with the manifestations of political diversity and constant political change. These issues are approached from a broad range of defined perspectives, paying attention both to the current forms of political activity and established political institutions and political behaviour in new contexts.With regard to both research and teaching, the key starting point is Political Research, which is a field devoted to studying and developing alternative approaches for analyzing political phenomena as well as to discussing the theoretical and social importance of Political Science. The curriculum adheres to the curriculum of Political Science set forth by the University of Tampere.
