Political science in the broadest sense relates to the study of human behaviour in terms of power relationships, institutions, and governments. It covers both international and home political systems, the history of politics, political theories and their applications, and more.
As such, it is classed as a social science, meaning that research methods for politics are often qualitative, in a similar way to sociology or psychology. However, it is still possible to use quantitative research methods in social sciences.
It can be said that that politics is one of the oldest fields of studies. There has always been a necessity for social order and regulation, even dating back to the earliest groups in society. As such, it is a complex area with many branches that are of interest to students.
These include international relations, liberal democracy, political thinkers such as Hobbs, Marx, and Rousseau, and political economy. Due to the range of topics included in the field, many politics students go on to use their knowledge in related fields such as law, journalism, social advocacy, or the civil service.
