Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

As a single mother who works full-time, it was daunting to think about going back to school for my master's. Kent State's online program is going to allow me to fulfill my career goals as well as be there for my son. I couldn't ask for more.

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a great graduate program. In my experience the staff has been so helpful and really want to teach students the knowledge. The only reason it didn't get a higher score from me is that I am completely online, and I can't rate the area and physical school.

I am proud of earning healthcare design masters program in Kent State university. This program is great. It's providing a solid foundation of that field.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

I love the online option of the MLIS program. However, the Blackboard website is hard to navigate and difficult to find needed resources. The advisor I was assigned is of little help when it comes to figuring out the program plan and how it applies to me.

Kent States Online MPH program is allowing me to pursue the graduate degree of my choice while not compromising on my schedule. It is also by far one of the cheapest grad programs out there. One of my better decisions!
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2019

The KSU's Institute of Applied Linguistics' Master's Degree in Translation is without a doubt one of the top two in the country. The world-renowned faculty members are extremely knowledgeable in translation studies, yet humble, friendly and accessible. It has been such an honor to receive training in translation from such renowned experts. The work/scholarship opportunities there are what make this program definitely the best in the country compared to those offered by other renowned translation schools.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2016

Great school with a safe campus. Professors are very helpful and supportive. The workload is manageable if goals are set in place. Cons include parking which can be a hassle at times, and cost of living is expensive.
2.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2014

I think that's the classes prepares me for the graduate program, however the professors have made students feel intimidated and afraid to come to them with queations and concerns. My personal experience has been poor in terms of finding help for employment on campus and advice for financial aid when seeking help. The knowledge I gain from the courses is vital and I have learned a great deal but I have found myself intimidated to ask questions and left feeling inadequate by attitudes of faculty.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

I like the flexibility of being able to complete my entire graduate program online, which allows me to work full time. I also appreciate the help of the professors and staff.
