The Political Science Field

Political Science explores the formal and informal institutions/processes of social regulation. Areas of focus include analysis of government structures, the decision-making processes, policy content, and philosophical traditions. 

The Political Science Discipline

Political scientists examine how governments mediate conflicts of competing social, economic, and political values. Of interest also are the political and legal relationships among world nations.
