In the Bachelor of Science in Journalism and Emerging Media, whether you are navigating the media-rich culture as a critical thinker, learning to write and produce news and feature stories as a journalist or are gaining hands-on experience in digital video and audio as a social media expert, Kennesaw State's Journalism and Emerging Media program offers endless possibilities. Learn the latest industry trends from faculty members who are award-winning professionals, including reporters, editors and international correspondents at the Associated Press, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, CNN, NPR, commercial radio stations and various newspapers. Additional information can be found at journalism.hss.kennesaw.edu
This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses based on the Journalism and Emerging Media 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.)
This is a gated program. See http://socm.hss.kennesaw.edu/for more information.
Milestones: All courses indicated as a Milestone with this icon ( ) should be completed in the term suggest 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.
