The Graduate Certificate of Political Science will equip students with an in-depth knowledge of contemporary political affairs and provides you with the analytical frameworks and research skills needed to understand the modern political landscape.
It enables students to address a range of critical questions, such as: What motivates voters to support populist candidates? How can election outcomes be more accurately forecast? What is the source of ethnic conflicts and how can it be best understood?
The program will be of interest to those intending to pursue research-oriented careers in government, international organisations, NGOs and private bodies, and to those intending further study in the field.
