In political science at Kenyon, we study the purposes, limitations, and significance of politics in human life. Analyzing American and world politics, faculty work with students to evaluate political arguments and public policies.
Why study political science at Kenyon? You’ll be part of a small and vibrant intellectual community that debates current events and the most profound, enduring issues of public life. We take political arguments seriously and strive to improve students’ abilities to advance arguments and understand their consequences.
You’ll also benefit from working closely with professors—experts in fields such as classical and modern political philosophy, international relations, and American politics—who strive to relate political ideas to political practice. How political decisions affect people’s lives is at the center of our concerns.
