NOTES:
  1. No course will count toward the major unless it is earned with a grade of “C” or better
  2. Refer to College-wide requirements when selecting 21 hours of elective courses.
  3. Film Studies Majors are encouraged to pursue a Minor in a foreign language, English, Comparative Literature, History, Art History, or Mass Communication, or a certificate in New Media Studies.
  4. Undergraduates, with careful planning, may carry a double major by judicious arrangement of electives and required general education courses. Students interested in a double major should be advised in both major departments.
  5. Film production courses with Georgia Film Consortium may count towards area 6 fine arts and humanities requirements.

In place of graduation checks, students apply to graduate. They can do this up to two semesters ahead; for example, in spring, they can apply for fall. This triggers the graduation advising office to check to see if they have missing requirements or are on track.  https://osas.franklin.uga.edu/applying-graduationStudents should apply to graduate as soon as they are able so that they can make any schedule adjustments that seem prudent.
