  • Degree offered: B.A.
  • This guide fulfills the Michigan Transfer agreement (MTA).  Humanities elective must be a non-foreign language course.  Science electives must be selected from different disciplines.   Social science electives must be selected from different disciplines.  Please check with your community college advisor for additional associate degree requirements.  GVSU will still honor the MACRAO agreement.
  • U.S. Diversity electives:  HIST 151, HIST 152, HIST 255, SOC 132, SOC 151
  • Students are encouraged to transfer once they can no longer take foreign language courses.
  • Students interested in secondary teacher certification should take PSY 131 and PSY 151 as social science electives and will also be required to complete a teachable minor.  Please see for minor options.


Grand Valley urges all students to seek study-abroad experience. Foreign language majors and minors will make exceptional progress by combining study abroad with their formal course work on the home campus. Approved study experiences of varying lengths - summer, semester, or academic year - carry full academic credit for all participants, including non-majors. The majority of programs currently offered take place during the summer and are accompanied by a Grand Valley State University faculty member. Longer stays can be arranged, however, through Grand Valley's institutional ties with colleges and universities in virtually every major region of the world, including major business schools in Worms, Germany, and Angers, France.
