Student Handbook Introduction
The purpose of this handbook is to acquaint you with the requirements of the various music programs and with the general policies and practices of the Department of Music.
Although some music requirements are stated in the GC Undergraduate Catalog, this handbook has been prepared to explain in more detail those specific areas in which a music major or minor needs the most guidance. While the undergraduate catalog is your main source of information about the university and its programs, this handbook provides more detail about the department and changes in policy taking effect between printings of the catalog. If you are majoring in Music Therapy, you must also have a copy of the Music Therapy Handbook. You can find more information on the Music Therapy website.
You are expected to be familiar with all policies and other information in this handbook. If you have any questions about any aspect of the information contained within these pages, please do not hesitate to ask the department chairman, faculty, or staff. Our purpose is to provide you with the best opportunity for a college education in music. The phone number of the departmental office is 478-445-8289.
