College of Arts & Sciences
Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences, the intellectual heart of Kent State University!
Our primary mission is to provide a quality education for all students, led by the very best teacher-scholars. We provide the foundational coursework for students throughout the University.
The undergraduate and graduate programs in the College encompass humanities, social sciences, natural and mathematical sciences. These programs are offered through 16 academic departments and several centers and institutes. We offer associate’s, baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral degree programs in a wide range of fields. Students can enhance their academic experience in a number of ways by digging deeply into research, field experiences, studying abroad, or participating in a learning community, just to name a few.

Examining the Origins of Aggression
One path to the origins of aggression is in the brain, where neurobiologists study the role of hormones on behavior. That is the broad focus of research being undertaken by Heather Caldwell, Ph.D., associate professor of Biological Sciences.
Our NEH Summer Institute “What is Gained in Translation: Learning How to Read Translated Texts” (June 7-27, 2015) is dedicated to the study of texts in translation as a way to develop cross-cultural literacy and to explore what can be gained by addressing issues of translation in the classroom.
