The work load is hella easy. I was taking 17 credit hours last semester, and I didn't break a sweat, got straight As.
There are a lot of unnecessary required classes that everybody hates taking. For instance, science, math and history classes- unless they pertain to one's major, they should not be required.
The academics are great at KSU, there's a wide variety of courses and majors to choose from!
I'm in the FLED program (Foreign Language Education) and it's great! You're constantly observing or volunteering in classrooms and there's a multiple opportunities for practical application. There's a emphasis on teacher community and sharing ideas and problems in order for all (including the professors) to become better instructors. Most professors are exceptional, and not only do I learn tremendously in my classes, but also enjoy them. There are a wealth of resources available to you as both an educator and a language learner, and even in my third year here at KSU, I am constantly suprised to keep finding the multitude of books, movies, newspapers, programs, conversation tables, events available to language students. The TRAC center also has die cuts, posters, crafts, books, films, movies, and even puppets and plastic fruit available to education majors. If you are seeking to teach a foreign language, KSU has great opportunities for you. Almost all FLED students accept positions at schools before graduation.
Topics vary from Intro 1101 to senior seminar 4400. Difficulty is expected, it is Psychology! Curriculum prepares us for graduate school. Registration is assigned my class status giving seniors first priority. Work load increases as class difficulty increases---that is how material is learned and acquired. There are many student study groups, teaching assistants (T.A's) and our own computer/writing lab. Instructors go the extra mileS to help us when asked.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
