Kent State's graduate programs in journalism and mass communication are designed to give students a solid background in preparation for a professional or academic career. Courses are dynamic, challenging, and professionally relevant. With small class sizes, students are able to learn from their professors and from the experiences of their fellow classmates; many of whom are working media professionals.

The Center for Scholastic Journalism strives to be the preeminent national resource for information about youth journalism and journalism education and one of the most effective national voices supporting scholastic journalists and their teachers. Through an agenda that includes research, programming, teaching and advocacy, the Center leads efforts to increase and improve scholastic journalism education and editorially independent student media in America’s high schools and helps raise awareness of the importance of scholastic journalism as a tool for First Amendment and civic education.
