The department offers M.A, M.Phil and Ph.D programmes in Political Science by research. Candidates, with necessary qualifications, can apply through the Academic and Publications branch of the university.

Department will assign supervisors to selected candidates. Post-graduate scholars are expected to work closely with supervisors throughout the programme of study.

The department may also offer fee-levying study courses for post-gradate students to enhance their subject knowledge and skills in research.

We encourage prospective post-graduate candidates to consult the department before applying and selecting their areas of research as well as research topics.

Prospective candidates who do not have qualifications to directly register for a post-graduate degree can sit for the Master of Arts Qualifying (MAQ) examination in order to obtain the entry qualification. Candidates can select papers for the written M. A. Q. examination in consultation with the Head of the Department or Post-Graduate coordinator.
