    Modern Language & Culture, BA - French (Teacher Certification Concentration)

    Program Information:
    The Department of Foreign Languages at Kennesaw State University is dedicated to offering students the opportunity to develop proficiency in one or more languages other than English. By mastering a second or third language, students enhance their understanding of other peoples and cultures, both past and present.

    We offer a single major, the B.A. in Modern Language and Culture, with a primary language of French, German, Italian, or Spanish. Minors are available in Asian Studies, Chinese Studies, Classical Studies, European Studies, French and Francophone Studies, German Studies, Italian Studies, Lusophone Studies, and Spanish. We are currently expanding programs in Japanese, Korean, and Latin. In addition, we offer courses in Arabic, Hebrew, Hindi, Russian and Turkish.

    Modern Language & Culture major with primary language of French requires completion of 45 hours of General Education, 18 hours of lower-division major requirements (including FREN 2001, FREN 2002, and FREN 2209), 9 hours of Related Studies (approved by the German Studies Advisor and the Department of Foreign Languages Chair), 9 hours of Other Major Requirements (vary depending on student’s concentration), 12 hours of Free Electives, and 30 hours of upper-division (3000 and 4000 level courses) courses in French as prescribed by the Department. Three (3) hours of the 30-hour major must be study or internship abroad of at least 6 weeks. Most students complete this requirement during a summer term.

    This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses based on the French - Teacher Certification 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.) 

    Milestones/Notes:

    1. Must earn a grade of "C" or better in coursework.
    2. Not all courses are offered every semester.
    3. See KSU online Catalog or departmental website for pre-requisite(s) or course descriptions.
    4. An official ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) is required of all Modern Language and Culture majors.
    5. This program requires three (3) hours of study or internship abroad. Most students complete this requirement during a summer term; regular semester options are also available. Students are eligible to take FREN 3390 or FREN 3398, Internship Abroad, any time after completion of FREN 2002/2003.

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.
