The Department of Political Science would deal in the area of study which would encompass the global as well as domestic affairs. It would examine some of the critical issues of modern times, including the changing nature of international cooperation and conflict, the new character of warfare, the impact of globalization upon states and societies and the persistence of world problems such as poverty, migration and drug trafficking. The roles of state and non-state actors in shaping world politics in the new millennium are central to the study of Political Science, as is an understanding of how different visions of world order affect the prospects for peace and security.

In the era of globalization and regionalism, national survival is now premised on international orientation for which the nations strive not only to equip themselves with modern technologies in all fields but also with competencies in the management of trans-national relations.

The main objective is to provide the students with an education that develops an understanding of the national and international community socio-political and economic spheres.
