Why political science degree?

The training of professionals in this career who promote processes of social change from politics is increasingly pressing for the health of the democratic system. Given the lack of Graduates in Political Science in the Dominican Republic, users of these services tend to use foreign advisers and professionals from other disciplines, such as sociology, social communication, economics and law.

With their practice, these professionals contribute to the interdisciplinarity of political sciences, but, due to their ignorance of the environment, the theories, techniques and / or particular tools of the career; they muddy the properly political analysis and end in mixed results or very far from the original purposes.
