Under Graduate Programme in Political

Semester Wise Details of Courses Recommended
By Board of Studies in Political Science (UG)
At its most basic level, politics is the struggle of "who gets what, when, how." This struggle may be as modest as competing interest groups fighting over control of a panchayath election in a rural area or as overwhelming as a military stand-off between international superpowers. Political science students study such struggles, both small and large, in an effort to develop general principles or theories about the way the world of politics works. Think about the title of your course or re-read the course description in your syllabus. You'll find that your course covers a particular sector of the large world of "politics" and brings with it a set of topics, issues, and approaches to information that may be helpful to bring about a world view among the new generation.
Political science is the study of governments, public policies and political processes, systems, and political behaviour. Political science subfields include political theory, political philosophy, political ideology, political economy, policy studies and analysis, comparative politics, international relations, and a host of related fields. Political scientists use both humanistic and scientific perspectives and tools and a variety of methodological approaches to examine the process, systems, and political dynamics of all countries and regions of the world.
Principal aims and objectives of the programme are:-
- To identify key questions, fundamental concepts, and theoretical frameworks critical to an
understanding of political theory.
- To solve complex problems by demonstrating a mastery of substantive knowledge in the
disciplines sub-fields.
- To follow scientific and humanistic methods to design and carry out politically oriented
research projects by utilizing sufficiently advanced social research methods.
- To communicate effectively political knowledge to general audiences as well as colleagues
in the field.
The syllabi of Kannur University revised by the Board of Studies in Political Science (UG). The Board has conducted five days workshop to develop a new curriculum. The work shop managed to develop a new curriculum that can impart a new professionalism and give insight to the newly emerged activities. A curriculum design committee was formed under the leadership of members of the Board of studies. A good number of teachers and academicians within and outside the state contributed their knowledge, experience and service to its academic exercise. The present system is the result of restructuring endeavor and its prominent features are Semestrisation, Choice Based Credit Programmes, and Interdisciplinarity, Continuous Evaluation, Grading and such student oriented academic innovations.
