Why Study Politics?

Life is already political. Politics, then, is not just something that we study and read about: it is something that we live.  In ways large and small, abstract and particular, global and local, theoretical and practical, our everyday lives are shaped by powers, ideologies, and customs.  Politics happens to us whether we see it or not. But by studying political science we can understand, become conscious of, engage with, and influence the factors that give meaning to our human condition.
