FUENTES, Claudio  y  SANTANA, Graciela. El "boom" de la ciencia política en Chile: escuelas, mercado y tendencias. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2005, vol.25, n.1, pp.16-39. ISSN 0718-090X.

Abstract The development of political science in Chile has traditionally been defined by its eclecticism and the relatively small number of schools on this field. However, at the beginning of this decade, an important twist was taken after the opening of a great number of schools of political science in several universities within the country. This article describes this new development, studying the curricula and professional profiles of the professors who are teaching in such schools. The authors address that, even though it is possible to observe a relevant transition in the discipline in this country particularly concerning the professionalization of the field, there still several weaknesses to be solved. It is argued that market forces have driven such process and that it is crucial to think about the type of professionals are being instructed.
