Politics happens between nations, within nations, and within the minds of people within nations. As a field of study, it reaches to many levels from the evolution of political philosophy and the character of contemporary political concepts to the problems of development in emerging nations, from the crisis of governance in Pakistan to the interaction of State, Society and System in the international arena. Political scientists explore the concerns and issues that animate public life. Using both humanistic and scientific approaches, they study how political communities attempt to reconcile the claims of justice, power, liberty, and authority. The political science is a broad based discipline and has direct connection with history, economic, geography, sociology, philosophy and law. Department of Political Science is one of the pioneering departments of University of Lakki Marwat. The department has, so far, graduated several MA batches and currently runs three programs: BS, MA and Associate Degree in Political Science. We are strongly committed to teaching as well as research. In this regard, together with the visionary leadership of the university, the department has started the process of initiating Master of Philosophy (M.Phil) in Political Science program which is expected to be commenced in the month of September, 2021. We try not only to increase understanding of politics, but to share our understanding with the larger community. To achieve these ends, we are working on bringing our syllabi at par with international standards. We hope that our struggle bears the fruit of promoting critical, logical and scientific thinking about state, government and society among its students who would be playing key roles in the country in future.
