CHSS Conferring Over 700 Undergraduate Degrees This Fall


KENNESAW, Ga. (Dec 9, 2020) — The Norman J. Radow College of Humanities and Social Sciences is pleased to announce that over 700 undergraduates will receive degrees from the college this month. The college houses 23 undergraduate programs, 10 master's degree programs, two doctoral programs, and number of minors and certifications for undergraduates and graduates in a variety of different areas of study.

"This is an exciting time for the Norman J. Radow College of Humanities and Social Sciences," said Dean Shawn Long. "The number of our graduates signals the importance and relevance of our curriculum to our students’ professional and personal success."

This news comes shortly after the announcement of a $9 million gift given to Kennesaw State University's College of Humanities and Social Sciences by Kennesaw real estate executive Norman J. Radow, and his wife Lindy. The gift includes $2 million to establish the Lindy Radow Humanities and Social Sciences Honors Scholarship Endowment Fund. The Lindy Radow Scholarship will be matched by funds from the KSU Journey Honors Scholarship, to create a Humanities-Honors Scholarship Endowment of $5 million

Meanwhile, nearly 2,900 Kennesaw State University graduates will be granted degrees in total this December, which is an increase from the over 2,600 that graduated in Fall 2019. 

“This calendar year has been unlike any we’ve experienced in higher education, and our students have shown tremendous determination and resilience, particularly our seniors who have earned their degrees,” said Kennesaw State President Pamela Whitten. “I could not be any prouder of what the class of 2020 has accomplished.”

All 2020 Kennesaw State University graduates are invited to the May 2021 commencement ceremonies, which will take place outdoors at Fifth Third Bank Stadium. There will be specific days and times between May 10-14 dedicated to each college for the 2020 academic year. Spring 2021 graduates will also receive their degrees during the designated time of their respective colleges. More information on safety and health protocols will be released as May approaches.
