Trilok Singh, For many years I’m studying “POLITICAL SCIENCE” (PS) in prestigious Colleges of Delhi University (DU), Named; KIRORI MAL COLLGE (Pursuing, PG) & SHIVAJI COLLEGE (UG), DEPARTMENT OF POLITICAL SCIENCE (PS). So, I’m Sharing my own experience which tells about relevancy of studying PS in order to career and opportunities etc.. As a Student of Political Science its always been my immense pleasure to elaborate my thoughts on recent issues and relevant topics too.
In this very writing attempt has been made to understand the relevance of Political Science with the same regard. Therefore, there are hardly any universal notion of understanding due to changing context that we need to keep in mind while dealing with the CAREER IN POLITICAL SCIENCE. Still, PS made me understandable about Institutions, Governance, Civil Society, NGOs, Corporates etc.. Which are the key of Social welfare and Development.
The Most important think i get after studying political science is that, I can understand the contemporary issues very easily and i may have a very deep eye on day-today; Social, Political, Economic, Cultural, National as well as International Event’s… It does not mean that, I’m advocating PS as a Career. Every Subject have own relevance too. All the readers the thing which i’m doing is that just i’m sharing my own views with you…
Importantly, “PS can Also lead to careers in the High Level Government Officers , Business, NGOs, Think tank, Electoral Politics, International Organisations, Journalism. While, Research and Publishing are typical occupation for the political scientist too. It also a very Significant base point for Professional Education, Social Works, Research” etc..
In the light of Civil services (IAS, IPS, IFS); Although, it is a competitive exam and requires other skills but still this subject (PS) also deals with Decisions and Policy Making, Bureaucracy, diplomacy etc). So, it can get you more familiar with the true nature of administration.
Moreover, Public relations specialists, Marketing researchers, Intelligence analysts. Political science majors refine their analytical skills while exploring policy initiatives and considering the ramifications of government actions. They are a combination of skills that qualify the candidate for the job and that prepare them to succeed in a professional workplace. PS, which does not confine to Politics only nor does it concern about what is political but also about issues having social and ethical values.
Significantly, Very Hard skills are the more tangible Knowledge and skills that, you need to succeed in a particular job or industry. Technical and computer skills are examples of hard skills. However, the core tenets of my education sharpened my ability to question, imagine, and bring idea’s to life in education, business etc. Yes, They became the strengths that helped me to become who I am.
