Film and Digital Media B.A.

Information and Policies

Introduction

Students in the general film and digital media (FDM) major develop an understanding of major movements in world cinema and different aesthetic approaches to the medium while studying the cultural impact of television and the rise of video and digital art in recent decades.

The integrated critical practice concentration is designed for film and digital media majors who have a special aptitude for and interest in combining work in critical studies and production. The concentration provides them with a more rigorous pathway through the major and, in their senior year, allows them to work on a senior project that integrates creative and intellectual work.

Students in all facets of the major acquire skills in media analysis while maintaining a broadly based, liberal arts perspective.

Students enrolled in film and digital media production classes have access to audio, video, and digital production and postproduction equipment. Facilities include a digital media lab; stop-motion animation lab audio recording studio; sound stage with green screen; motion capture facility; digital nonlinear editing rooms; video format conversion rooms; a computerized sound effects library; and student equipment checkout. Additionally, computer laboratories equipped for digital image manipulation, web authoring, and interactive interface design and viewing rooms are available. The critical studies facilities include classrooms equipped for high-end film, video, and data projection. The library holdings in film and video history, theory, and literature are complemented by a large collection of films, videos, laser disks, and DVDs, including a diverse range of international feature films, experimental film and video work, animation, silent films, and documentaries.

Some courses offered by the Film and Digital Media Department are restricted in enrollment; admission is based on the completion of prerequisites and other specific written application requirements.

Upper-division digital media and production studio courses require coursework to be completed on computers. Instruction in and software for production courses utilizes the macOS platform and primarily consists of Apple and Adobe video production software packages. Many University of California, Santa Cruz, students purchase laptop computers. Film and digital media students who are considering purchasing a laptop computer for production work are encouraged to consult with the department’s operations staff. A list of recommended computer configurations and information regarding education pricing on software packages is available on the Film and Digital Media website.

Transfer students should review the Transfer Information and Policy Section.

Getting Started in the Major: First-Year Students

For information about getting started in the film and digital media major please see the Getting Started in the Major guide for first-year students.

This major is not highly sequential or course intensive. Students may begin taking courses toward the major in the first year, but it is not required.

Transfer Information and Policy

Transfer Admission Screening Policy

Film and digital media is a non-screening major. Students planning to apply in this major are not required to complete specific major preparation courses for consideration of admission to UC Santa Cruz.

Transfer students can finish the film and digital media general major requirements within two years. While not required for admission, transfer students are encouraged to complete UCSC general education requirements or the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) prior to transferring.

Getting Started in the Major: Transfer Students

To meet major qualifications, all major qualification courses (FILM 20A, AND either FILM 20B or FILM 20C) must be completed by the end of their first quarter in residence.

A maximum of two courses from another department or institution may be substituted if articulated through assist.org or approved by Film and Digital Media faculty. At least one of the major qualification courses must be taken at UCSC.

Transfer students are strongly encouraged to participate in the campus orientation programs, connect with the undergraduate advisor, and utilize transfer-focused campus partners like STARS upon their arrival.

Major Qualification Policy and Declaration Process

Major Qualification

Students must complete two courses: FILM 20A, AND either FILM 20B or FILM 20C with letter grades of C or better or P grades to qualify for the film and digital media major. Letter grades of C- or below, and NP grades, may not be used to fulfill the major qualification requirements.

At least one of the major qualification courses must be taken at UC Santa Cruz.

Appeal Process

Students may appeal a negative decision within 15 days by submitting an appeal letter to the film and digital media undergraduate advisor. The department will notify the student of the outcome within 15 days of receipt of the appeal.

How to Declare a Major

Students must submit a petition to declare and complete the major declaration workshop as soon as they complete the major qualification requirements or reach their declaration deadline quarter (whichever comes first).

Please see the department’s website for details on the process for submitting the petition to declare and completing the declaration of major workshop.

Students petitioning to declare when the campus declaration deadline is imminent (i.e., in their sixth quarter, for students admitted as frosh; in their second quarter, for students admitted as junior transfers), will either be approved, denied, or provided with conditions (e.g., completion of some courses with certain grades) that will be resolved within at most one more enrolled quarter, even if they have not completed major qualification (MQ) courses.

Acceptance into the film and digital media major does not constitute acceptance into a concentration.

Letter Grade Policy

Letter grades of C or better or P grades are required in the major requirement courses (See Major Qualification above). Letter grades of C- or below, or NP grades, may not be used to fulfill the major's requirements. Students must follow the campus policy on grading requirements, including the P/NP grading policy.

Course Substitution Policy

A maximum of two courses from another department or institution may be substituted if articulated through assist.org or approved by Film and Digital Media faculty.

Study Abroad

The department strongly encourages students to explore studying abroad while attending UC Santa Cruz. Please see the UCSC Global Learning website for more information and consult with the undergraduate advisor as early as possible to discuss planning.

Film and digital media has unique department-based exchanges with the University of Sussex in England and the University of Bergen in Norway. UCSC Global Seminars taught by our Film and Digital Media faculty in Italy and Morocco are also offered. Students in these programs may be allowed an additional substitution for participation in these programs. Please see the Film and Digital Media Department's website for more information.

Honors

Honors in film and digital media are awarded to graduating seniors who meet or exceed a cumulative GPA of 3.5 in the required major courses.

Three-Year Pathway

The Film and Digital Media Department has designed a three-year pathway for students who want to complete their film and digital media B.A. in three years. It is an intensive program that includes all of the courses for the current film and digital media general major as well as all general education requirements and electives required for the university. The three-year pathway is designed for the FDM general major; completing a concentration is not feasible for a three-year pathway. Students should begin the FDM general major three-year pathway in their first year to be able to complete the required courses in three years. A sample planner can be found on the university advising website. For more information, contact the Film and Digital Media undergraduate advisor.

Critical Studies and Production Pathways

For students interested in pursuing a focused area of study, the film and digital media major offers unique pathways embedded within the general major in critical studies and in production. If interested in pursuing these specialized academic plans, please contact the undergraduate advisor as early as possible.
