    Modern Language & Culture, BA - Italian (Cross-Disciplinary Concentration)

    Program Information:
    The B.A. in Modern Language and Culture is designed to develop students' communication skills and understanding of other cultures and to foster respect for difference and diversity in a global society. The Italian Studies Program provides learners with the opportunity to achieve competence in spoken and written Italian, in understanding Italian literature and culture, and in applying these linguistic, literary, and cultural skills to the study of other disciplines. The Program promotes independent thinking and innovative undergraduate research so that students may pursue specific personal and professional goals while preparing to succeed in the global community.

    This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses based on the Italian - Cross-Disciplinary Concentration 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.)

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.
