Political Science opens window to a host of careers

The course structure and curriculum of Political Science have undergone a massive change since the last academic year. With the dawn of globalisation, many significant changes began to appear on the social, political, cultural and economic horizons. The undercurrent was so forceful that time and space began shrinking spectacularly. Inter-personal relations started changing. And the social, political and economic connects were felt more than ever at a small interface. It was imperative to incorporate appropriate changes in the syllabus of Political Science to make it contextually relevant.

Students seeking admission to Political Science need not have specific training and temperament in the subject preloaded from the school level. One can have a Science, Arts or Commerce background at the school level and yet can study Political science at the degree level.

There is a vast array of opportunities that graduates in the subject can avail of, including joining the Civil Services, a dream for most students. Political Science has a double advantage — it scores very well in the Civil Services examinations and it familiarises one in a better way about administrative functioning, governance and administrative thinking. Second, it helps you in the legal profession, judicial services and journalism . Third, one can go for higher education in the subject and acquire deeper knowledge and explore careers as a university professor, researcher, freelancer, analyst, and columnist. Fourth, Political Science is a natural choice for those who dream of becoming diplomats or foreign policy experts.
