Political Science is a branch of social science that deals with the theory and practice of politics and the description and analysis of political systems and political behavior. Political Science is often described as the study of who gets what, where, when and why. (Wikipedia)

Political Science is commonly divided into four main areas of study: U.S. government, comparative government, international relations, and political theory.
