|Kent State University|
The School of Art at Kent State University offers a long tradition of imagination, thought, skill, and achievement in the visual arts. For its students, both current and future, its alumni and its many friends, the School of Art continues to explore ideas, provide the highest standards of craft, and stimulate individual and collective creativity, teaching, and research through its programs, curriculum, and exhibitions. This excellence was recently recognized by US News and World Report's ranking of the School's graduate programs in the top 100 of the 1200 US grad programs in the visual arts surveyed.
On this site, you can find current student and program activities and opportunities, advising and degree information, and ways to contact faculty and staff, as well as a look at what's going on right now.
