Additional Degree Requirements
Language. While English is the dominant language for activities in the School of Cinema, applicants must demonstrate a level of competence that would allow them to read technical material in French (or another pertinent language with regards to their research). Students may write reports, examinations, and theses in English or French, as they choose.
Coursework. It is expected that students, on average, complete 12 credits of coursework during the first year and complete the remaining three course credits before being admitted to candidacy. On a yearly basis, a minimum of 12 credits of core graduate coursework is offered for doctoral students only by the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema. This includes Proseminar I and Proseminar II, which are taken consecutively in the student’s first year.
