Secondary Field in AFVS

There are three curricular tracks in AFVS for students wishing to pursue a secondary field: film and visual studies; film/video production; and studio. Six courses are required to complete a secondary field in AFVS; ordinarily at least five of them must be offered in AFVS. The AFVS secondary field requirement checklist explains the requirements and is useful when planning secondary field courses.

Students do not declare a secondary field through the department as they do when applying for a concentration, though departmental approval is required for a secondary field. Students use the secondary fields web tool to indicate interest in the AFVS secondary field, and to record the relevant courses there.

Paula Soares, the manager of academic programs and Matt Saunders, the director of undergraduate studies, advise students considering a secondary field in AFVS.
