Political Science is the study of the rise and evolution of governments and politics in the world. Specifically, political science examines the origins and contemporary institutions of governments, the evolution and state of political parties, campaigns, elections, citizen rights and responsibilities, law-making and law enforcing, civil rights and liberties, and our court system.
