Students who plan to apply for the dual-degree program should indicate their intent to their assigned academic adviser as early as possible in their undergraduate studies. To be considered for this opportunity, students must have completed 60 hours of undergraduate work and have an overall GPA of 3.5 or higher. They should already have completed their Area F Film courses with a GPA of 2.5 or higher, qualifying them to take upper-level FMLE courses as a major.
Students with credit for the FMLE major from institutions other than Georgia State may apply to the program, but must have completed with a grade of “B” or better FMLE 4120 (Production I) at Georgia State prior to application.
If determined to be qualified by typical admission measures of the College of the Arts, dual-degree students can begin taking coursework toward the designated master’s degree program while still completing their final year of bachelor’s degree work.
Acceptance into the dual degree program does not constitute admission to the graduate degree program.
Application and admission to the graduate program occurs in the senior year and is contingent upon:
1) successful completion of the bachelor’s degree,
2) maintenance of the required program grade-point average,
3) performance in the graduate-level courses taken during the bachelor’s degree and
4) meeting of the other admission requirements of the specific program.
During the student’s senior year, if these requirements have been met, the student will submit the online application in order to begin taking graduate coursework in the following fall semester. The program’s graduate coordinator can answer questions about the process of applying to the graduate program in order to complete the graduate portion of the dual-degree coursework.
