German universities are known for conducting brilliant courses in the political science field. Political science is a field of social science which includes studying of state, nation, government and politics and policies of the government. Former great philosophers have described it as the study of state. This course is multi-dimensional as it includes both studying of the subject and applying it in the political life as well. It also berates and scrutinizes the political systems, political behavior and culture. Political scientists are professionals who are involved in untangling relationships between political events and conditions. They then tend to decipher how the political world works.
Political scientists are involved in study of origin, development, and operation of political systems around the world. Political science works in tandem with economics, law, sociology, history, anthropology, public administration, public policy, national politics, international relations, comparative politics, psychology, political organization, and political theory. Political science originated 2500 years ago and is ancient in nature.
