Director's Message





Welcome to SPIR – the School of Politics and International Relations at Quaid-i-Azam University! As Pakistan’s premier institution of higher learning in International Relations and Political Science, we take great pride in offering quality education to students enrolled in under-graduate and post-graduate programs. We offer four-year under-graduate degrees in IR and Political Science, as well as MPhil and PhD degrees in IR. Our MSc program in IR and Political Science is currently being phased out. We also run an evening program offering certificate, diploma and MSc degree in IR. SPIR has a highly qualified faculty, with several faculty members having PhDs from leading foreign and national universities. Scores of our graduates have made their mark globally and locally in the world of academia, civil-service, and media and politics. With our current focus on inter-disciplinary studies, policy relevant research, knowledge sharing and international collaboration, we envision SPIR to be a hub of international studies in South Asia.
