									The BA in Film and Video Studies will require 120 credit hours. Of those 120 credit
hours, 44 are from required General Education courses and 48-50 are from required
courses for the major, distributed among core courses; practicum hours; analysis, history,
and theory electives; video production electives; and electives in a focus area outside of
the FAVS major courses. This leaves students 26-28 credit hours to pursue other
interests, including minors.
