Resources for Students

The Electronic Media and Film Department provides academic advising resources and media production facilities and equipment to its students.


The Department of Electronic Media and Film (EMF) is committed to a student-centered approach to advising. Your EMF adviser will help you with more than simply building your course schedule. Your adviser will also assist in helping you achieve your academic and professional goals.

Degree Completion Planning

Degree Completion Planning is an advising process designed to more efficiently map your path toward graduation. An Individualized Degree Completion Plan takes the Suggested Degree Completion Plan of your major (or concentration or track) and personalizes it for your academic career given your unique needs, goals and aspirations.
