Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

I'm taking the MLIS online. I can recommend this program and the first reason that comes to mind is the availability of the professors. They answered my questions well in the course but also those that were about things related to LIS but not about the course.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2014

The professors are well-educated and supportive. On-campus clinic provides mostly child-centered therapy experience. Externship experiences offer varied opportunities.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

The M.Arch program at Kent State University is well-reputed in the area, and the faculty are all very wonderful and helpful with their student's academic progress. Transportation on campus is almost non-existent. As a student who cannot afford a car, it is very difficult to find transportation to events and interviews. Bus lines to main cities are impossible to schedule into a working day. The academic value of attending Kent State is very good, but the expense of living in the area is a struggle for students.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros would be the flexibility of online courses and the help from faculty. The cons would be the limited graduate scholarships available.

Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The MLIS at Kent State has excellent professors who are leaders in the field, they excel in their research and have valuable knowledge and experience to impart. The program provides students with the opportunity to work in the library at Kent or in Columbus, so more practical knowledge can be gained as well. However,the majority of courses are now being offered as only online. With such brilliant professors it would be an honor to be able to have more face to face contact. There is also not much financial aid available to International students nor much diversity in the department.

Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2016

I live at home, not on campus, and take all online courses so I can not answer things about local KSU's transportation, surrounding area, student diversity, social life, campus safety, nor of its affordability of living.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: awesome faculty, great peers, real student focus, highly ranked program Cons: late night internship classes, two courses you have to take online

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel like the program is academically challenging and giving me the kowledge base necessary to succeed. The communication process seems a bit disorganized between the adminstrative staff and the students (financial aid office for example). The program is demanding and rightfully so for the content - therefore it's enjoyable. The profressors are knowledgable and helpful and have concern for your success.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015

While this program is excellent overall, there is little support from the campus given to the English program. Much of the equipment is out of date, and the buildings are rather antiquated. Nevertheless, there is quality education being provided here in spite of various drawbacks.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

Kent State University's Masters in Public Administration Program is one of the few fully online MPA programs that is nationally accredited in the United States. The program has been around since the 1960s and is well respected, and includes alumni such a Bill O'Reilly and U.N. Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon.
