Welcome to the BUE Political Science Department!
It offers a comprehensive and analytical approach to the study of Comparative Politics, International Relations, Political Theory, Public Policy & Administration, and Area Studies.
The programme is recognised nationally by the Supreme Council of Universities, and validated internationally by London South Bank University (LSBU), adhering to the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) criteria. In addition to that, the Political Science department, as part of the Faculty of Business Administration, Economics, and Political Science, was accredited in 2019 the National Authority to Ensure the Quality of Education and Accreditation (NAQAAE).
You will be taught and mentored by experienced national and international staff members from various academic backgrounds. As a student, you will be offered the opportunity to study abroad at LSBU as part of our summer study programme.
The Political Science department is keen on providing the students with practical experience through a wide range of extra-curricular activities, field trips, and internships.
During the course of your degree, you will attain the necessary knowledge and skills to secure a related career opportunity. These include the command of academic reading, writing, and researching, as well as, the flexibility of adapting to different contexts. Moreover, blended, interactive, and student-centred learning techniques will enhance your communication and decision-making skills.
Our graduates are prepared to face a great number of professional challenges and opportunities in both public and private sector, non-governmental organizations, investigative journalism, and news anchoring. You will also be prepared for taking the Ministry of Foreign Affairs examination and pursue a diplomatic career.
Soon, the Political Science department will be launching its post-graduate programme.
I wish you a successful and fruitful academic experience.
