Studying politics broadly defined in a non-Western setting provides students with a more hands-on approach and alternative insights into many topics discussed in mainstream political sciences classes, such as democracy and democratization, gender, development issues, political economy, to name a few.
In addition, studying such topics in the Global South exposes students to the practical side of the decolonizing social sciences movement within academia.
Studying in Morocco provides students with a unique opportunity to carry out significant fieldwork, be it in urban or rural settings, but also in archives and local libraries.
Living and studying in a Global South environment and being exposed to different settings, institutions, and faculty from around the world, enables students to really understand the nuances of our unequal globalized world.
They can carry such knowledge and empathy to provide more suitable solutions to the many issues that people around the world face.
Our students go on to pursue graduate degrees, academia, governmental and non-governmental jobs either in their own countries or internationally, they work for think tanks, development agencies.
