Introduction and History
The School of Political Science at Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University, established on 19 August 1982, has strong commitments in researching, publicly servicing and providing study of Political Science with distant learning methods.
Due to the fact that Political Science in different universities in Thailand is classroom-based designed for those with high school certificate and those who come for “degree,” education for all outside classroom to increase people knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for living and relevant working has not yet established in any universities.
