Study Abroad for Film and Media Arts majorsAU Abroad, in consultation with the School of Communication offers a selection of programs suited for Communication Majors. These programs are recommended based on the academic quality of the host institution’s course offerings in your major. In addition to the following programs, students can also explore other options through AU Abroad.
Generally, students majoring in Film and Media Arts may study abroad between their second semester of sophomore year through their senior year. The decision when to study abroad should be made in consultation with the student’s academic advisor to ensure it fits with their academic program.
Students need to keep in mind SOC only allows 6 credits of approved COMM courses for a major when students study abroad (except the Prague Film Production program—if you have questions about this program, please speak to your SOC academic advisor).
To find courses that have already been approved for Film and Media Arts majors in SOC, students can use the course equivalency database. To do so, students can type FMED into the search bar. This will bring up a list of courses that have been offered abroad, that have been approved to count toward your major. Students can then click on the name of the class and locate where FMED is listed in the comment section. Next to FMED, students will see a note for which major requirement the course will count. Students are NOT limited to just these courses. Students will need to request equivalency for courses which have not been previously reviewed.
