Abstract

Kennesaw State University recently signed formal agreements to become part of a consortium of 11 U.S. universities and the University of Salamanca in Spain. The goal of the agreements is to advance the understanding of Hispanic languages and culture.



One of the ways the goal will be reached is through a collaboration between the department of foreign languages at KSU and the University of Salamanca to develop and implement a master's degree program in Hispanic studies. In addition‚ the agreements provide an opportunity for student and faculty exchanges‚ collaborative research projects and other ventures.



A leader in innovative teaching and learning, Kennesaw State University offers more than 150 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees to its approximately 38,000 students. With 13 colleges on two metro Atlanta campuses, Kennesaw State is a member of the University System of Georgia and the third-largest university in the state. The university’s vibrant campus culture, diverse population, strong global ties and entrepreneurial spirit draw students from throughout the region and from 92 countries across the globe. Kennesaw State is a Carnegie-designated doctoral research institution (R2), placing it among an elite group of only 6 percent of U.S. colleges and universities with an R1 or R2 status, and one of the 50 largest public institutions in the country.
