Political Science

Politics Explained

The political spectrum

Politics is a social science and can be studied and understood in the same way as anthropology or economics.

Left or right? Centrist or radical? Conservative or libertarian?

These are terms you’ll be introduced to in our courses as you’re led through an objective analysis of how the political system works in the U.S., as well as in a few other countries.
