Political Science intersects with almost all the humanities. It analyzes and systematizes political systems, political theory, and international relations. Students sound out the dimensions of these three sectors in basic courses before they specialize. They are strongly recommended to study a foreign language.

Our Political Science program at TUJ is designed to provide opportunities for students to understand how politics works at local, national, and global levels; how values, interests, and institutions in the political world shape our daily lives; and how we as responsible citizens can participate in politics to influence what governments decide. In addition, our program helps students understand competing perspectives and theories on politics and government because it is important for developing sensitivity and respect for cultural differences in today’s world.

TUJ Political Science students develop a variety of marketable skills such as empirical research methods, communication skills, and analytical writing skills by taking upper-level research courses. These skills are all helpful for students to pursue their future career paths in civil services, law, media, the private sector, nonprofits, and postgraduate studies.
