Admission to the Major

2013-2014 and later

Academic Gateway Requirements for the Film Studies Major:

Students seeking admission to the film studies (FST) major must first declare a pre-film studies (PFST) major, enabling them to enroll in FST 200. Students who earn a “B+” or better in FST 200 will be admitted automatically to the FST major. Students who earn a “B” or below in FST 200 may compete for a limited number of seats in the FST major by submitting an application.

For purposes of admission to the FST major, the department only credits students’ first registered grade in FST 200 (i.e., in the admissions process, the department will not credit grades earned upon repeating the course)
