Programs: Critical Languages Program

The Critical Languages Program is designed to meet the need for instruction in less commonly taught languages (LCTLs) which are not offered through the regular curriculum of the Department of Foreign Languages at Kennesaw State University. All basic language courses emphasize speaking and aural comprehension at the elementary and intermediate levels while a writing component is incorporated at the advanced level. Languages offered vary from year to year depending upon demand. Also, depending on the enrollment for a particular course, it may be offered with a part-time faculty member or via the Self-Instructional Language Program Model. The Critical Languages Program at Kennesaw State is affiliated with the National Association of Self-Instructional Language Programs (NASILP).
