1. What kind of career will a film major prepare me for?
Our students have gone on to careers in film and television and in education (see Alumni page). The analytical and communication skills our program develops enables our graduates to work successfully in creative, educational, and business environments. Back to Top.

2. Will I be able to do an internship for credit?
Yes. Contact organizations directly to set up unpaid internships. The Director of Film Studies can start you off with a list of organizations our students have worked with in the past, but you are not limited to these groups. Internships are generally treated as 3 hour independent study courses and require 150 hours (10 hours per week during a regular semester). They should enable the student to learn or develop a specific skill in film programming, exhibition, production, research, or promotion. Contact the Director of Film Studies for more information. Back to Top.

3. What minimum GPA is required to become a film major?
Students must have a 2.00 or better GPA to declare the Arts Studies-Film major. Back to Top.

4. How do I become a film major?
See Hope Ziglar, Student Services Coordinator in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHASS) in Caldwell G106. Back to Top.

5. Will I have a faculty advisor?
After declaring a film major, students are assigned to a film faculty member for advising. Students will receive a letter within several weeks of declaring the major with that assignment. It is important to keep in regular contact with your faculty advisor. Back to Top.

6. Can I do film as a double major?
Yes. Be aware that 9 hours of coursework may be double counted (count toward both majors). Back to Top.

7. Can I minor in film if I am a Communication or an English major?
Yes. Be aware that only 3 hours of coursework may be double counted (that is, contribute to both your major and the film minor). Back to Top.
