Introduction of Department

The Department of Political Science at Gomal University was established in September 2010 under the visionary leadership of Prof. Dr. Mansoor Akbar Kundi, the university’s Vice-Chancellor. Initially a part of the Department of Public Administration, it gained its separate identity in 2011.

Soon after the establishment of the department, our primary focus is on developing academic excellence and fostering global challenges. We offer programs such as the Four-year BS in Political Science, the Two-year M.Phil. in Political Science, and the Two-year associate degree Program (5th Semester). In the future, we plan to introduce additional programs in international relations, peace and conflict resolution, global studies, and disaster risk management.

Our dedicated faculty members bring a wealth of expertise to the classroom, fostering rigorous research and critical thinking among students. We aim to create a dynamic learning environment that nurtures intellectual curiosity and equips students to tackle contemporary challenges.

In line with our commitment to inclusivity and diversity, we embrace students from diverse backgrounds, enriching the learning experience and fostering a comprehensive understanding of political dynamics and governance.

As we move forward, our vision is for the Department of Political Science at Gomal University to be recognized as a center of excellence, producing visionary leaders who contribute positively to society and global progress. Through these efforts, the department is harnessing youth potential for cultivating ethical leadership, academic excellence, and global engagement, creating a brighter and more interconnected future for all.
