Faculty of Law and Political Science


Law department was established in September 2010 and aims to develop in their students a high level of skill in comprehension, analysis and presentation. Students are expected to read a good deal, mostly from primary sources (such as cases and statutes), rather than to take other people’s word for things. They are expected to think hard about what they have read, so as to develop views not simply about what the law is, but also about why it is so, whether it should be so, and how it might be different. Students are asked to process what they read, together with their own thoughts, and to prepare essays and presentations for discussion in tutorials. They are meant to be competent for today’s market competition and perfectly measure up to world standards to pursue higher education abroad. The curriculum consists of General Subjects 13%, Basic Subjects 20%, Specialized Subjects 65.6 % and Optional Subjects 0.2.5%.


Department of Political Science

We are in the era of globalization. The changes in the world, the region, and specially the neighboring states wanted or unwanted will affect us.

The study of global developments, the prediction of the changes and reactions of countries, their impact on the country and the recognition of a wise decision to protect national interests is in the field of political science professionals. The Department of Political Science at Gawharshad Institute of Higher Education is one of the departments that started its activity with the establishment of this institute, with its efforts in education and research, having qualified faculties in the PhD and Master level with need-based approach for training the qualified human resources to lead the future of Afghanistan. The result of this endless effort is the presence of a large number of our graduated students in executive work in different sectors of the government and many are continuing their studies in master level at home and abroad.

The problem with our community is the lack of dedicated and professional forces in the power structure and solving of this problem is the duty and responsibility of all people. We have provided a platform for young people who are concerned about the status quo and feel responsible; by joining to this department they will prepare themselves for solving the current conflict in Afghanistan and do their obligation to the nation.
