Academic Advising

The department’s senior academic advisor, Molly Rechkemmer, is available to assist you with developing an educational plan for Cinematic Arts. Your overall plan will incorporate how to satisfy your degree requirements, as well as how to select courses to help you reach your career goals. Cinematic Arts majors are encouraged to seek academic advising as often as needed or desired. Note: All entering first-year students will be advised in the Academic Advising Center until they complete 24-30 hours of college coursework.

Cinematic Arts faculty members are also happy to offer additional advice related to their specific areas of study. Students are particularly encouraged to talk with faculty about graduate school, careers, and ways to gain additional expertise in their field. See our faculty page for information about faculty research areas, contact information, and availability.
