Oxford Continuee Information

We’re excited that you are considering majoring in the Film & Media studies department when you come to the Atlanta campus. We’ve compiled some helpful information especially for Oxford students to help you make the most of your time at Oxford and navigate your final four semesters.

Classes Available at Oxford

FS 270 Introduction to Film
This class is a requirement for both majors as well as a prerequisite to many of the higher level film classes at the Atlanta campus. It is recommended to take it at Oxford to maximize your scheduling flexibility in Atlanta.

FS 107 Intro to Digital Video
This class counts as a Category 5: Media Making course for the Media Studies Major, as well as an elective for the Film Studies Major. This class is a prerequisite to several higher-level production courses at the Atlanta campus. If you are interested in production, completing this course at Oxford is strongly recommended. FILM 107 at Atlanta does not have the prerequisite of FILM 270, unlike at Oxford. However, due to demand for this course at the Atlanta campus, there is an application process for those sections. Applications are open before the enrollment period.

FS 393 Documentary Film & Media History
This class counts as a Category 4: Theory, History, and Criticism course for the Media Studies Major. It also counts as a core class for the Film Studies Major.

FS 378RW Screenwriting
This class counts as a Category 5: Media Making course for the Media Studies Major, as well as an elective for the Film Studies Major. This course does not count towards a Creative Writing Major.
