What is Political Science?

Political Science is the study of all forms of political power - from overt forms of coercion such as police and the military, to the internalised behaviours of democratic citizens. Political domains are now understood to be vast and include the public and the private, government and business sectors, and relationships between individuals.

Our expertise ranges from political theory to intellectual history, gender, Indigenous politics, human rights, and political economy.

Students are encouraged to develop their own account of the good society.
