Political science may be defined as the study of politics and government, in terms of its principles, aims and methods.
To understand the political science in the right perspective, it is essential to study its functional aspects. It plays an important role in the development and inter-linking of various courses. A student studying in any course can opt for Political Science. It requires serious probing of matters concerning the nation. A Political Science employee gets an opportunity to control the financial activities of various agencies of the government.
Political science plays a pivotal role in the importance of budgeting, the budget process, its characteristics, objectives and various theories of budgeting, principles of budgeting and enactment of budget. The political science also warrants an employee to assess the changing concept of organisation and human behaviour in an organisation.
The job prospects unfortunately are not abundant in India for Political Sciences. But it is a proven fact that only the political science students can find a berth in United Nations Organisation (UNO). The sources are of the view that Political Science is not only closely related to Social Science, but it is also associated to Law, Public Administration and Public Relations. There are courses like Social Management of Family Organisation, Labour standards, Labour studies, Labour management, political communications. The prospects for students opting this course widen when they enter in Voluntary Organisations. Political Science graduates could also look at joining the media as political journalist/analyst/ researcher.
