Important Policies

  • Electives cannot be "double-counted"—an elective can only fulfill one FMS elective requirement.
  • No more than two practice electives may be counted toward the FMS minor.
  • An internship through the course FMS99 counts as a practice elective but does not fulfill the film and media practice elective requirement. Learn more about internships.
  • Only ONE FMS Directed Study (FMS 195) can be counted toward the FMS major.
  • Up to three courses taken abroad or at other universities can be counted toward the FMS minor at the discretion of the program director.

To discuss your options or any questions about your program of study contact FMS Director of Undergraduate Studies Khary Jones.
