6В03103 «Politology»

It is very important to study political science, as it affects such areas of public life as education, health, housing, jobs and conflicts between people and States. Understanding political science contributes to the development of analytical and professional skills related to politics. These skills help people realize and realize group and private interests. Studying political science helps to gain experience working with different communities to achieve specific goals. It also requires reading the relevant literature and expressing one's opinion orally and in writing. All of the above help to develop critical thinking skills. Reading classical political literature (Plato, Aristotle, Machiavelli, Lock, Abay), helps to develop research and analytical skills that are useful for all professions. The study of political science develops the ability to draw conclusions and make decisions by synthesizing different sets of data. Having successfully mastered political science, an individual becomes a citizen involved in the domestic and foreign policy of his country, through rational and permanent participation in elections and referendums. The study of political science can also be useful for those who are unsure of their future careers. Specialized training in this field develops skills useful both in business and politics that can help political science students find work later in life. Political science is a particularly good basis for a career in law, public administration or international relations.
