The Department of Political Sciences endeavors to be well-recognised as a leader among Political Science programmes at institutions of comparable size and character. Pursuant to this goal, the Department is committed to excellence in teaching, research and learning. Linking theory with practice and creating well-skilled, political-oriented graduates who possess knowledge, skills and who can critically challenge, are key aims of the Department. With this vision, the Department is well-placed to serve and effectively contribute to the community and the Palestinian situation through its graduates.


The mission of the Department of Political Sciences is to provide a solid, open-minded curriculum that exposes students to the principal sub-fields of the Political Science field. The Department works constantly to encourage students to be nationally and globally aware through researching, reading and participating in Study Abroad Programmes and to be good readers and analysers of events, whether on the Palestinian level or Regional and Global level.
