Electronic Media and Film Degree Requirements 2009-2010 catalog College of Social and Behavioral Sciences Presented by The Electronic Media and Film Department and the Office of Academic Services and Advising
Why Change the Curriculum? The Electronic Media and Film Faculty developed the new degree requirements based on the changing trends occurring in the field today. Current industry standards and practices are incorporated into the changes in EMF courses. These changes add to the current skills and knowledge to create a dynamic level of instruction that will prepare students for employment today and in the future.
Should I Change Catalogs? A student’s degree requirements are determined by the catalog they are declared in when they become a student at NAU. Students may change to a newer catalog to take advantage of changes to degree requirements if they determine the change is in their best interest. If you are a Freshman or Sophomore we strongly recommend that you move to the Fall 2009-2010 after verifying that it will not delay graduation. If your are a Junior you can select the new degree requirements after checking with an advisor and exploring the new plan. If you are a Senior planning to graduate Spring 2009, Fall 2009 or Spring 2010 we recommend that you remain in your current catalog. When should a student consider a change of catalog of their degree requirements? If the student want to incorporate the new curriculum into their degree plan. If the change of catalog will not increase their time remaining toward the degree. If the student’s minor and or 2 nd major will not change in the new catalog.
How do I change catalogs? How can a student figure out whether it would be best to change catalogs? Meet with a professional academic advisor to go over the degree requirements and compare plans for all components of your degree. How can a student change to the newer catalog? After meeting with an advisor, complete a major change request form to submit to the Office of Academic Services and Advising. The change of catalog will be entered by office staff.

Does the change to the degree requirements mean I cannot graduate until I complete the new Electronic Media and Film requirements? No, as long as you remain in your earlier catalog for all of your degree requirements and are a continuing student at NAU you may earn your Electronic Media and film degree by completing 42 units.
