Political Science

The Political Science degree programme is broadly designed to produce graduates who are adequately equipped with comparative knowledge of the nature, dynamics and problems of political systems, state, ideologies, governance, public policy processes and public administration, especially within the context of developing countries like Nigeria. As a major field of study, Political Science has other specialized branches that have developed into full- blown Departments and specializations such as International Relations, International Law and Diplomacy, Public Administration and Peace Studies. The National Universities Commission (NUC) has produced the Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS) for Undergraduate Programmes in Nigerian Universities that guide Universities in mounting other degree programmes in the Social Sciences such as Political Science. The NUC has no BMAS for Political Science and Public Administration combined for which the Western Delta University awards a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) degree. In fact, the curriculum for the said programme is a B.Sc (Hons.) Political Science. It is hereby proposed that Bachelor of Science degrees in Political Science, Public Administration and International Relations being introduced are in line with the respective BMAS as separate and distinct degree programmes.
