Course Descriptions


Course Numbering System

The following lists include all courses normally offered at Albion College. However, not all courses are offered every year. When possible, courses offered in alternate years are designated. For details, students should consult the Class Schedule for each semester, available online at: www.albion.edu/registrar. The College reserves the right to add or withdraw courses without prior announcement, as conditions may require.

Unless otherwise stated, 100 level courses are intended for freshmen, 200 level for sophomores, 300 and 400 level for juniors and seniors.

A list of courses which meet the core and category requirements, organized by departments, is available online at www.albion.edu/registrar.

Further information may be obtained at the Registrar’s Office in the Ferguson Student, Technology, and Administrative Services Building.

 

Music

Students performing in ensembles have the option of electing them for credit or not for credit. If credit registration would cause the unit enrollment to exceed four and one-half, the student may elect an audit registration, for which no fee will be assessed. Up to two units of ensemble credit may be included among the total required for graduation.
