Stark County's two public colleges awarded 925 associate degrees in 2008, according to figures released by the Ohio Board of Regents last month. The awards represented a 7% increase over 2007 for Stark State College of Technology and an 8% increase for Kent State University Stark.*

The growth in degrees at both institutions outpaces the state average of 5%.

Stark State accounted for 835 of the degrees, while Kent Stark awarded 90. While the associate degree is the terminal degree at Stark State, Kent Stark has diversified over the past several years and now offers 11 bachelor degree programs, a professional M.B.A., and a masters in education in addition to its three associate degrees.

The total number of associate degrees awarded at all state institutions during 2008 was 19,174 and awards at all levels, from certificates to post-doctoral, were 80,831, an overall increase of 2% over the previous year.
