Students take a full course load (12–16 credits) of classes during Fall and Spring semesters. Many of the Berklee Valencia course offerings fulfill Emerson gen ed requirements. Emerson students will be allowed to take any Berklee-Valencia course offered, assuming that they have the prerequisites or are qualified, and they must submit an academic approval form. In certain cases, this may mean an assessment of the student’s skilll/knowledge level by Berklee-Valencia faculty or administration after arrival. Most courses are 1–3 credit courses. Classes run from 9:00 am–9:00 pm on the Berklee-Valencia campus.

We highly recommend that Emerson students meet with their departmental advisor to discuss course selection and to find out which Berklee Valencia courses can qualify towards your departmental degree plan.
