Politics is life, and like life, politics is struggle. The study of politics equips you with the concepts, theories, and facts necessary to make sense of that struggle.
Politics is about us: how we make decisions in society and who gets what, when, and how. Politics is also concerned with the conflict of ideas and values, not only at the level of the local community or the nation, but also internationally. More specifically, it has to do with who governs and how and why decisions that affect all of us (such as how much students pay to study at a university) are made.
