Welcome to Political Science!

Political Science is one of the largest disciplines in the Faculty of Social Sciences. It employs some 50 teachers and researchers and has approximately 2,000 students, including postgraduate and minor subject students. Research fields cover politics, world politics, administration, organisation, and leadership and management in Finland, Europe and at the global level. The discipline has an open atmosphere, and it encourages discussion and debate both in instruction and in research projects. The staff and students cooperate with each other closely and in a straightforward manner.
