D. DEGREE OPTIONS
The Bachelor of Film Studies can be taken with Co-operative Education but students may face sequencing constraints and require extra time to complete their programs. See section 3.4.4 Co-operative Education Programs for information and requirements.
- Students who are unsuccessful in applying to SAIT may transfer to the four-year Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies at the University of Calgary, or to any other University of Calgary program for which they qualify. Courses already completed toward the Bachelor of Film Studies (BFS) may be applied toward the Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies.
- Students should consult with a program advisor to ensure that they do not exceed the limits for junior-level courses as the diploma transfers as 24 junior level transfer credits.
- Students completing their diploma in the semester prior to graduation will need to ensure that a transcript recording the diploma conferral is received by the University of Calgary by the transcript deadline date. Due to the length of processing time required, transcripts received after the deadline will be considered for the next convocation period. Please contact the Arts Students' Centre for further information.
