51 units required for the major.
Students meeting the requirements for admission to the major may apply for admission into the production option by presenting a portfolio to the department in January of their sophomore year, or in subsequent Januarys. Admission to the option will be in the Fall semester only. Portfolios will be comprised of 1) a statement of purpose, 2) a critical analysis of a film or television show, 3) a sample of creative work (either writing, visual art or a short film or video) and 4) two letters of recommendation. Although a transfer student may apply to the FEA production option prior to learning whether or not they have been admitted to the university, they cannot be accepted into the option until they have been officially admitted to the university. The Film and Electronic Arts Department is not involved in the university admissions process.
Students admitted to this option are required to maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA average in all major course work in order to retain their place in the option. Students admitted to the option are also required to abide by the rules and regulations as specified in the FEA Department's Policies and Procedures handbook, which is available for purchase through the department.
Students may apply to the FEA Option in Narrative Production when they have completed a minimum of 72 units, but may not apply after they have completed more than a maximum of 88 units.
