NOTES:

  • Degree offered: B.A., B.M., B.M.E.. Students seeking the B.A. degree must demonstrate third semester proficiency in a foreign language.
  • Each applicant wanting to major or minor in music is required to arrange for a personal audition with the Music Department.
  • Transfer students are required to complete a minimum of 30 hours at Grand Valley, which include at least eight hours in applied music, three hours in major ensembles, and nine additional hours in music to be determined by the advisor.
  • All students are required to take a theory placement exam and a keyboard placement exam.
  • All majors must fulfill the department recital and Music Major Seminar attendance requirements, fulfill the keyboard musicianship requirements, and perform one or two faculty approved recitals, as appropriate to the degree program selected.
  • It is strongly recommended that students transfer after one year of basic courses since none of the required music courses are available at Alpena.
  • This guide fulfills the Michigan Transfer agreement (MTA).  Science and social science electives must be selected from different disciplines.  Humanities elective must be a non-MUS course.   Please check with your community college advisor for additional associate degree requirements.  GVSU will still honor the MACRAO agreement.
