Kent State University is one of six institutions in Ohio to offer the Master of Liberal Studies (MLS) degree, but the only one that allows a student to take courses from several different colleges or schools in the university. The KSU Master’s Degree in Liberal Studies therefore provides students with a unique opportunity to study at the graduate level in fields that are of interest and use to them. KSU Master of Liberal Studies students, under the guidance of the Program Director, select courses from across the university to form their own individualized and integrated program of study. Please visit the program's page for more information on Program Requirements.
