3 College Junior

Academics: Being an education major at Kean is a great experience. It is one of the top education schools.

5 College Junior

Academics: Kean offers a wide variety of majors and academic programs. They offer everything from theater to education and plenty of opportunities

3 College Junior

Academics: The professors I have had thus far were ok. Some were great and some weren't so. That didn't stop me from doing my best. The workload is flexible and manageable. One thing that I like about my institution is that every major has different clubs and internship programs available for them, which gives the student an easy pass to a better future.

5 College Junior

Academics: It is the best because that's the major I choose to study. I have many options to take other classes because I am allowed to take over 20 credits of free elective courses.

5 College Freshman

Academics: As a design major I feel like I have a lot of internship opportunities, because of the proximity to NYC and that most of the design professors are adjunct and are currently working in the field that I want to be in in the future. As far as the program goes it is great. The workload isn't that bad, because it's all art related which is what I love so it's not really work. The new Green Lane building has a whole floor specifically for design and is absolutely beautiful.
