Courses by Semester

The BFA in Film & Video program of study starts each fall semester and is completed in a continuous and pre-determined 4-semester, 2-year cycle. No courses are offered every semester and a student who misses a registration deadline or fails a course will be "out of sequence" and will have to wait another year for the course to be offered again.
