Director's Welcome

Director Robert Walker

Welcome to the School of Digital Science at Kent State University!  

If you like digital technology, want to do something interesting, exciting, and meaningful, and like the idea of working with students and faculty from across the university, you may find us to be the perfect match for your interests.

Our undergraduate students get a broad exposure to digital technologies — information, software, and hardware — and they learn how different societies, professions, and organizations use those technologies.  In your first year, you may take a class with a journalism professor, a computer scientist, an ethicist, or an architect.  Our students learn how to manage a project and work on a team.  They are the integrators, the hybrids — the ones who like to work with other people doing something creative in the real world.

Our graduate students come from a variety of backgrounds but also want to add breadth in their skill set.  Students from a technical background may study enterprise architecture or management information systems, while students from a design background may study software development or telecommunications.

All of our students like to explore, and our degrees encourage breadth across multiple disciplines along with depth in one specific area.  Our concentrations allow students to build on their strengths and interests and branch out in new directions.

For more information about the School of Digital Sciences, please explore our web site, read About DSCI and Why Digital Sciences?, and explore our Undergraduate and Graduate programs.

If you have any questions, please schedule a visit, schedule an advising appointment, send an email to digital-sciences@kent.edu, or give us a call at 330-672-9105.   We look forward to talking to you!

Robert A. Walker, Director
