Political theory is concerned mainly with the foundations of political community and institutions. It focuses on human nature and the moral purposes of political association.

Political theory also focuses on empirical research into the way political institutions function in practice.

Some scholars and researchers compare contemporary political systems in order to judge which types best provide particular values: order, equality, freedom, or economic security and well-being for their citizens.

Others suggest that the main purpose of comparative politics is to provide an understanding of how and why different societies develop different kinds of political institutions.

Comparative politics courses are of two basic types. One offers comparisons of a particular set of problems or institutions in a number of different countries.

Most students will want to begin their study of comparative politics with the Introduction to Comparative Politics (POL S 204), which combines the two main approaches by including comparative discussions of particular problems, issues, processes, and institutions in a wide variety of political settings as well as in-depth readings and lectures on some of the major countries in the contemporary world.

International relations is a diverse field both in terms of what kinds of behavior are studied and how they are studied. International conflict, particularly war, continues to be an important focus of the field. Why do wars start? Who wins and why?

Courses in the political methodology field cover philosophical issues regarding the possibility of a science of politics, the similarities and differences between political science and other social sciences, alternative modes of explanation, and the truth of knowledge claims.
