You will investigate the origin, nature, methods, and limits of human knowledge; traditions of argumentation; as well as political and ethical systems of thought from a truly global perspective.This degree also allows you to study political theory, political sociology, political economy, and international relations from a global perspective. You will also receive training in the theories and methods of these sub'disciplines, which you will then apply to the analysis of real world political situations.
