Degree: Education

I'm really enjoying my online Master's of Music Education degree at Kent State University. I like the convenience of taking courses online and not many schools are providing master's of music ed online yet. The admissions staff and student support personnel are wonderful with communication and assisting you when you need help. I find the courses to be insightful and moderately challenging. There is a fair amount of work load and I do with the courses were a week or two longer to provide more time to finish projects. But overall, I am still able to work full-time and get everything finished. I would recommend this program to anyone.

The courses are interesting and valuable. So far everything I have learned has been directly applicable to my future career. The professors are all very knowledgable and 2 out of the 3 I had this past semester I would consider outstanding. To me the biggest con on this graduate program is that so many of the courses are only offered online. Another negative is that many courses are compressed into 10 weeks. In other words, you learn 15 weeks worth of information in 10 weeks so the workload is exremely high.

KSUCPM has been fantastic since I have been here. From day 1 I felt right at home with the rest of the students. The administrative staff really played a big role in helping me decide to come to Podiatry school here. The cadaver is amazing and the rest of the building is very nice. Some of the older faculty are not as up to date with newer technology, and the weight room is also a little outdated but other than that i love it here!

Kent State University has a wide range of Graduate Assistantships along with faculty that work hard to prepare you for the work force. The social climate in Kent is not prevalent because the area is very small. Kent is, however, located close to major cities allowing students to travel. The Network of graduates from this program is amazing and the job placement rate is over 90%.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

A big issue is the consistency of instruction: some instructors, unsurprisingly, are amazing while others are far from good. It is a small, closely-knit program with a very positive and collegial atmosphere, lots of opportunities to do some high-caliber research, and decent funding; however, the location is far from ideal for many reasons.

The Ph.D. program at Kent State University College of Nursing is such a great program for preparing you to be a nursing scientists with leadership to improve your area of interest. Faculties have done varieties of researches and publications. Also, the international activities are such a wonderful and really strengthen part in the program.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2015

Great program in terms of curriculum. Facilities are outdated. More stress on skills outside of research for finding a career to fit individuals is much needed. Over-strained administration causes many oversights.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

Some aspects of campus I can't rate baed on my own as I'm taking classes online and living in another state. However, I know the campus is very reputable and safe, as friends have attended there. So far the library science program is excellent. It is exactly what I needed from a program- completely online and let's me stay in my current job. The professors are extremely supportive and willing to help. The workload might be a little much for some, but they are graduate courses, so you just need to balance yourself.

Kent is a highly desirable campus d/t it's location. Grad. school is a big undertaking, there are some courses that are not available on-line, it would be helpful to have these resource at regional satellite campus locations. Access to library resources and on-line assistance are available.
