Is there any relationship between political science and politics?Political science is a subject studied by many in the humanities stream. Many people select this subject for preparing in prestigious competitive examinations like civil services examination etc.
Language wise there appears to be a direct relationship between the words 'politics' and 'political'. However, my basic question is as to whether there is any relationship between political science and politics?
Do studying political science is likely to help in adopting politics as a career?
Also, why politics is not taught as an academic course in the universities etc.?
What are your comments in this regard?
