Interactive Design, BS
The Bachelor of Science in Interactive Design provides students a hands-on approach to developing the skills needed to serve in the field of interactive design as visual designers and user interface designers (UI) in digital user experience environments (UX). The emphasis here is on creating well-rounded designers that are suited to meet the growing marketplace need for interactive design. This approach to design merges technical knowledge and aesthetic creativity with an ultimate focus on understanding users. Students will take studio-based courses in the School of Art and Design as well as theoretical and technical courses related to front-end digital design and culture.
This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses based on the Interactive Design degree requirements and course prerequisites in the Fall 2017 Undergraduate Catalog. (If course prerequisites change, students must meet the prerequisites in effect when you take the course, so always check the current Catalog for course prerequisites.)
Milestones: All courses indicated as a Milestone with this icon ( ) should be completed in the term suggested to prevent delays in program completion.
Disclaimer: An academic map is a suggested four-year schedule of courses based on degree requirements in the KSU undergraduate catalog. This sample schedule serves as a general guideline to help build a full schedule each term. Some departments allow students to use the three credit first-year seminar course as a free elective for a degree program, which may impact the program's total credit hours. Milestones, courses, and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major are designated to keep you on track to graduate in four years. Missing milestones could delay your program. Enrolled Students should reference DegreeWorks and not this plan.
This map is not a substitute for academic advisement—contact your advisor if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements. Also see the current undergraduate catalog (catalog.kennesaw.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives. Note: Requirements are continually under revision, and there is no guarantee they will not be changed or revoked; contact the department and/or program area for current information.
You may choose to attend a summer term to reduce your load during fall or spring terms but still stay on track to graduate in four years.
