The Columbus Program in Intergovernmental Issues provides students the opportunity to experience first-hand public policy making process in Ohio’s state capital while earning a full semester’s credit toward graduation. The program is open to students from all academic disciplines who have completed at least 45 hours of college coursework with a minimum 2.5 GPA. The program is a unique learning community and requires full-time residence in Columbus during the fall semester.

Students receive 15 credit hours of academic credit, broken down as follows:

  1. 6 credit hours of credit for attending regular briefings
  2. 6 credit hours for completing an internship in Columbus
  3. 3 credit hours for completing the requirements for POL 30430 State Government, taken while residing in Columbus

The program is offered, in part, with the cooperation of Kent State alumni living and working in the greater Columbus area and, thus, offers students excellent career networking opportunities.
