KSU offers online programs
The campuses and colleges continually look for ways to reduce their costs, maintain academic quality, and be more accommodating to the changing needs of our students. Increasing the number of online courses saves the university money and provides scheduling flexibility for students. Online courses also frees up space to accommodate our increased enrollment. Kent State offers more than a dozen online graduate degrees in diverse areas such as User Experience Design, Public Relations, and Instructional Technology; three undergraduate programs in Insurance Studies, Public Health and RN to BSN; and, over a dozen online certificate programs with focused curriculum and specialized knowledge for topics that include Behavior Intervention, Health Informatics and Nursing Education.
For the 10th time, Kent State University is being recognized as a “Great College to Work For,” according to the latest survey by the Great Colleges to Work For program. The program recognizes the colleges that get top ratings from their employees regarding workplace practices and policies.
The U.S. Department of Education has awarded Kent State University a nearly $1.2 million, five-year TRIO Educational Opportunity Centers program grant. The program is designed to provide support services to qualified adults, including veterans, who want to enter or continue a program of postsecondary education.
