ARTIGA-GONZALEZ, Álvaro. La ciencia política en El Salvador: sus primeros pasos. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2005, vol.25, n.1, pp.162-170. ISSN 0718-090X.

Abstract In this paper, a description of the most recent development of political science in El Salvador is drawn. Its origins, evolution, academic influences, challenges, strengths, social appraisal, impacts and the job opportunities for the new professionals graduated from this discipline are briefly described. The paper emphasizes three points: First, the fact that only one Political Science Academic Program exists in El Salvador, a Master's Degree Program. This article mostly refers to this Program and, therefore, has a specific focus rather than a general one. Second, political science research is also still at its beginning stages. Finally, the Community of Salvadoran scholars in political science is small. In fact, it only has a few members, less than ten. They all graduated from foreign universities, and represent in someway a generational chance for the social sciences in El Salvador.
