  • Objectives
    The undergraduate program offers a wide range of courses to acquaint students with a theoretical and an empirical understanding of politics, state and its institutions and transnational politics. The study of Political Science stimulates the interest of those students who would like to have a clear grasp of classical and contemporary politics, both domestic and international. Class sizes have been maintained at a manageable level (introductory courses at 100 and senior seminars at 20), which enables faculty members to establish a direct relationship with each of their students.
