About Us


With a history of more than half a century, the Political Science Department is one of the oldest in Iran. It has 29 faculty members among which 12 are assistant professors, 9 are associated professors and 8 are professors. Focusing on teaching and research, the department admits students at the B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. levels. In the B.A. level, students are admitted to political science as a general discipline. In the graduate level (M.A. and Ph.D.) however they can concentrate on one of four subfields: Iranian studies, political thought, public and political sociology. Depending on future needs, the department may consider opening other subfields such as development studies, political behavior and political psychology.
