What types of research opportunities are there?

The program is designed to prepare students to engage in teaching and research at universities and colleges, and conduct research at top public and private research organizations. From the first year onward, students become involved in collaborative research with faculty and other graduate students that often generate conference papers, journal publications, and book chapters. Many students also present and publish single-authored work during their time at Kent State. The department assures funding for students to present papers at professional conferences each year.
