Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros include strong professional practice classes, creative thinking processes, and theoretical design strategies. The cons include heavy workloads, lacking quantity of professors that provide a narrow framework of educators, and difficult time schedule that interferes with the ability to maintain a full time job to help support oneself during school.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: mostly excellent and very supportive professors. Professors are more than willing to meet and discuss outside of assigned times, Cons: administrative side seems a little disorganized.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2010

Kent State was a great school to attend, but I felt I was very limited to in-state opportunities after graduation. I now live in Chicago and am very disappointed Kent's alumni network is not strong outside of the Northeast Ohio region. My experience itself at Kent was very positive, but the post-grad networking opportunities need further development if Kent hopes to be a top school.

Degree: Liberal Arts

The program for translation is highly regarded in the US. Graduates have gone on to work in translation companies and academia.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2012

The affordability matched with a distinguished faculty and accessible facilities makes Kent State a good choice for students, however, the breadth of cutting edge technologies and foci of studies makes one have to make serious compromises for a strong, increasingly digital, education in the 21st century.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

In the Cultural Foundations program at Kent State learning is challenging and inspiring. I have developed my thought process through the rigorous academic studies while broadening my network of scholars and other graduate students in the field of comparative and international education. The professors are supportive and encourage a collegiate environment.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Kent State University's online Masters in Music Education is an outstanding program. There is an abundance of support available for this to be a successful experience, even for those who aren't the most tech savy. Pros include having a student service rep who calls me twice during each course to inquire how my class is going and if I have any questions or concerns, professors who are prompt in responding to course questions, 24/7 live tech support available, 7 week long classes, practical courses and challenging course work that equips me to be more proficient in my profession as a music educator. I have yet to experience a con at KSU with this program of study.
