LUMS - BSc (Hons) Political Science

The Political Science major aims at developing the thinking, reading, writing and oral expression skills needed for a critical understanding of politics. Students are strongly encouraged to re-evaluate commonly accepted ideas and consider alternative explanations. Our pedagogical approach lays special emphasis on helping the students to develop rigorous oral and written argumentation and to support their own conclusions with carefully deployed evidence.
Political Science is traditionally divided into 4 or 5 major sub-fields: Political Theory, Comparative Politics, International Relations, Public Policy (Policy Analysis or Government), and Political Sociology. The curriculum in Political Science offers an opportunity to specialise in each of these subfields. However, at LUMS, there are several areas of research that cut across the purview of the traditional sub-fields. This is why the LUMS Political Science curriculum also offers to the students the possibility to engage with the rest of the Social Science curriculum so that they can meaningfully benefit from a broad-based, inter-disciplinary education.
