CURRICULUM FOCUS
Kent State University at Kent Human and Social Sciences Program
UDC Contributor

Mention Kent State University and many people will remember immediately the headline-making incident in 1970 in which Ohio National Guardsmen killed four Kent State students during a Vietnam War protest. To have something positive come from that tragedy, the university created the Center for Applied Conflict Management. Today, more than a thousand students per year take courses that teach applied skills in conflict management and nonviolent change. The class Intro to Conflict Management has developed into a popular way to satisfy Kent’s core and diversity requirements. Other undergrads hone their training in negotiation, mediation, and strategic planning by pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in applied conflict management. Many put their skills to good use and get a jump-start on potential future employment by holding an internship junior or senior year. Students have gained hands-on experience working and observing at places such as the American Civil Liberties Union, the Cleveland Mediation Center, and the Ohio Attorney General’s Office. Responding to the interest for graduate-level training, Kent State created a track in the discipline in the political science Ph.D. program in 2013.
