Bachelor of Arts in Film and Media Studies University of Florida



Course info


The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences recognizes that students' academic and professional interests may include more than one discipline and that some majors are not formally available at the university. Because interdisciplinary approaches, research, and curricular activities are becoming increasingly appropriate and valuable within the liberal arts and sciences and other fields, UF students have the option to develop and pursue interdisciplinary (IDS) majors that cross the boundaries of numerous disciplines.

The interdisciplinary B.A., with a concentration in film and media studies, enables students to pursue a liberal arts approach to audio-visual studies. The courses offered provide a range of training from professional and applied (anthropology, architecture, education and theatre) to historical and experimental (art, English, Germanic, Slavic and Romance languages).

The film and media studies major encourages students to integrate these offerings by working in both theory and production. For the senior thesis, a student may choose an essay, a film script, a short film or video, or work in a related medium.

The major requires 27 credits minimum, 20 credits of core courses and seven credits from IDS 4906 senior independent work. Majors should take ENG 3115 Introduction to Film: Criticism and Theory, because it serves as the prerequisite for ENG 4136 Film and Video Production. Students and sponsors select courses for CLAS electives.

Because many of the courses in the departments of Art, English and Theatre have prerequisites, students should plan their freshman and sophomore work with the major in mind. Under certain circumstances, instructors will waive some prerequisites for IDS majors, but with space at a premium (especially in studio and production classes), students should not try to avoid any requirements. Students may, however, use up to nine credits of 2000-level prerequisites as electives.

Early preparation for the major should include ENG 2300 Film Analysis. Other useful courses are GET 3520 Early German Cinema - 1945, TPP 2100 Acting for Non-majors, TPP 2110 Acting 1: Instrument and Discipline, TPP 2260 Acting for the Camera, ARH 2051 Introduction to the Principles and History of Art 2, ART 2622C Video Art: Montage, PGY 2441C Photography: Images Order and Idea, and PGY 2442C Photography: Figure and Ground.
