MA and PhD programs in Political Science

Our MA and PhD programs in political science is designed in response to several academic concerns. We want to provide academic trainings for scholars and researchers to be able to produce evidence-based knowledge on the dynamics of Muslim politics.

Graduate program in social sciences rarely provide innovative teaching in the study of political dynamics in Muslim societies, emphasizing instead on the issue of culture, social traditions, religious rituals and symbols.

Thus, our programs offered in political science aims at preparing the graduates with comprehensive knowledge of political theories and comparative political studies as analytical tools to understand the politics of Muslim societies.
