Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

I really enjoyed my experiences at Kent State. I am a Doctoral Candidate now, researching and writing my dissertation, so I am rarely on campus any more. I do miss the classes, my fellow classmates, and the overall diversity of the campus.

Kent State's User Experience Design online program is very interesting, I am able to connect with students from all over who have different backgrounds and experience levels while working through the program and the hours that are convenient for me.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2015

Faculty: Most of the professors are seasoned pros in the field of Public Relations. That's a good thing. There are a few on staff with attitude problems; most of them graduated from SI Newhouse. Avoid them if you can. Staff: Only had a few interactions with staff due to excellent online resources. Most were good. Only real complaint had to do with the Financial Aid dept for one semester. Classes: There are some classes that overlap other courses more than they should. There are also more than a few classes that focus more on the theoretical than what I prefer which is using case studies to demonstrate points and learn lessons. Most of the classes are very useful but that varies based on the professor; feedback is important. Program: If you go into this program thinking you'll learn all you need to know, you are fooling yourself and your future employers. If you consider this program as a jumping off point for your own studies and your career, your expectations will be met. The latter is really the mindset you need to have; this profession is constantly evolving so you have to commit to learning. Bottom Line: This program will introduce you to concepts and ways to interpret the study of Communication. No program can or will teach you all there is to know. What a good program does is provide you a guide with which to navigate the world of information. KSU does that very well.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2017

The Public Health masters program in Environmental Health is intellectually inspiring. Current trending issues are used in demonstrating the need for the development and implementation of policies to ensure a safe environment. The rich diversity of faculty and students help to pool knowledge from different backgrounds in addressing environmental issues.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

The past year has been online classes. This January I will begin to take classes on site for my program. Being online has been very convenient to still work full time while pursing my degree. One disadvantage with the online programs is that there is not as much lecture and personally for me I really benefit from lectures. I am looking forward to going to a class environment for the next semester.

Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2017

Nothing quite prepares you for a career in librarianship like actual hands on experience. Library science is just one of those occupations that you can read the text book all day long, but still experience something you never encountered in a classroom once you're out in the field. That being said, the faculty at Kent is excellent. They are always supportive and very approachable. I enjoyed my grad school experience so much, I'm currently enrolled in a second Master's program in the School of Digital Sciences.

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros are the supporting staff and faculty at this campus. Every teacher I have spoke to or person I have gone to in need of help or information, have kindly assisted me. The cons are the transportation system not going very far from campus, which makes it difficult for a person like me who lives right out of the campus area.
