The Bachelor of Arts in English majors take 18 hours of courses in lower-division major requirements. These courses are designed as an introduction to the field of English Studies. At the 3000/4000 level, students choose one course from each of eight categories: Language, Writing, Genres, Cultural Studies, Theory, and three period requirements. The English major culminates in the Senior Seminar capstone course. All English majors must demonstrate competence in a foreign language up through the level of FL 2002.
This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses based on the English degree requirements and course prerequisites in the Fall 2018 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.)
The degree requires the completion of 123 hours.

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.
