Applied Computer Science, B.A.
This innovative and interdisciplinary Computer Science program opens doors to a variety of computing careers. Students may combine computer science with a variety of other disciplines through a formal minor. The program also works well as a double-major. Applied Computer Science is less formal and mathematical and instead focuses more on applied computing, providing a well-rounded and balanced university educational experience. The BA targets emerging fields within computer science including those spanning other disciplines. Coursework includes Web Development, Social Media, Database, Game Design, Linux OS, Mobile Computing, Data Warehousing, Cloud Computing, Data Mining, and Robotics. The BA can integrate with many other disciplines through the required minor; particularly strong minors include Information Technology, security, business minors, Geographical Information Systems, and the sciences.
This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses based on the Applied Computer Science degree requirements and course prerequisites in the Fall 2018 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.
