Kent State University's School of Digital Sciences is a cutting-edge interdisciplinary school designed to train tomorrow's digital leaders.
The School of Digital Sciences is Kent State University's only independent, interdisciplinary school. As an independent school, the School of Digital Sciences is outside all of the university's colleges. As an interdisciplinary school, the School of Digital Sciences — which has no permanent faculty — draws faculty from colleges across the university to teach its courses, and its students have a unique opportunity to take selected classes from other programs as part of their major.
The school offers a variety of programs, including:
