GVSU Academic Opportunities

Academic Programs

With over 300 areas of study to choose from, a liberal education emphasis, excellent faculty, and hands-on research opportunities, you're sure to find what you're looking for. Grand Valley's strong academic focus creates a challenging and rewarding educational experience.

Combined Degree Programs

Most undergraduate degrees can be combined with a master's degree to save you time and money, and get you into the workforce sooner. On average students save $8,500 in our combined degree programs and take up to four fewer classes than if earning the degree separately. 

First-Year Learning Community

The First-Year Learning Community is an optional program that consists of connected courses that have been developed by faculty to focus on a shared theme. Each pairing satisfies portions of the general education program requirements while enhancing the student experience.
