Avocational Degree Program:


KSU offers numerous other degrees and majors, in addition to the nine offered above, which are “avocational” degrees. Avocational degrees are not accredited, and not designed or intended to qualify its participants and graduates for employment. It is intended solely for the avocation, personal enrichment, and enjoyment of its participants.


Applicants who earn avocational degrees will be given higher priority for acceptance into advanced degree programs in KSU’s nine vocational degree programs. This is due to KSU being more confident that the prospective student is capable and ready for graduate level work, despite not having a “vocational” degree. For example, if a student earns a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering which is “avocational” (see disclaimer below), KSU may choose to accept this student into one of the nine vocational master’s degree programs which are required to have a religious modifier, and can be used for employment.
