In practice contemporary political scientists engage with one another in a wide range of research methods including quantitative (statistical) and qualitative (interpretive) approaches to gather information about a topic that they are interested in studying.

Political science comprises numerous subfields, including comparative politics, political economy, international relations, political theory (or philosophy), public administration, public policy, and political methodology. Although there are many commonalities among these subfields, each one possesses its own unique characteristics. 

What careers can you go into after studying political science?

Political science intersects with other fields including economics, law, sociology, history, philosophy, anthropology and psychology so these are just some of the careers you can venture into. An interdisciplinary approach facilitates understanding of our complex political world.

Studying political science is a good option with many career opportunities available to you. Political science as a whole occurs all around us in the world every day.
