Students who are interested in declaring the Film major, or who wish to obtain information about the major, should consult with the Undergraduate Major Advisor (UMA). The UMA advises students regarding major requirements and policies, maintains student records, handles the distribution of advisor codes, and certifies major requirements for degree eligibility. Students who have declared the Film major are expected to meet with the UMA at least once a semester to discuss their progress in the major, courses planned for the next semester, and to receive an advisor code. Drop-in Major Advising is available Monday-Friday. The Faculty Advisor, Damon Young, is available to answer questions about film courses, faculty areas of expertise and interest, course equivalents or waivers, internships, and other related topics.
