They must also complete the Option requirements, in the order presented, followed by any additional requirements under Other requirements, to a total of forty courses. Example: If the total course requirements add up to 43 once the major requirements for the second subject area are included, then section (c) of the Option requirements and one course from section (b) of the Option requirements should be excluded from the degree requirements.
Total courses: forty.

Students interested in taking the first-year prerequisite for film making and video production courses (or any other film making or video production courses) must be Communication Studies General or Honours degree students. The Communication Studies Department may also limit or prevent enrollment of the same student in both video and film course sequences, depending on the overall availability of seats in production courses in relation to demand by Communication Studies General and Honours degree students. Entry into advanced film making and advanced video production courses will be based on academic performance and portfolio review after the completion of introductory film and/or video production courses. Advanced production students must successfully complete 40-310 in their first semester after admission to the advanced film and video production courses.
