Political Science

Political Science is for, as we say, people who care to matter.

That’s because our classes and our faculty study power, which affects everyone’s life, whether in the family, the workplace, business, or government. If you want to change something at Kent State, in your community, or in the world, you need to understand how power is distributed and wielded—that’s what we do here. Whether your interests lie in the fight for democratic freedoms, human rights, the global environment, racial equality, social welfare, or some other vital cause, we will help you study it and engage it.
