Department of Political Science

Department of Political Science

In 1947, the Political Science Department was established under the School of Law. In response to academic needs, the Department was subdivided in 1963 into Political Theory, International Relations, and Public Administration. A Master program was established a program granting an Executive Master of Public Administration. A Doctoral program became available in 1976. NTU’s Political Science program offers much flexibility to students. Although students need to take a few mandatory subjects within their subdivision, they are also encouraged to broaden their interests and choose classes in other subdivisions.
