Resources for Current Students
Our current students have access to a wide set of resources to ensure they are successful during their DU experience. We encourage students to get involved on campus, work with your advisor to make sure you are on track with your degree and explore your post-graduate career options. Whatever you're looking for, we've got you covered.
Once you declare an MFJS major, you will be assigned a faculty advisor. Your advisor is there to help you review your degree progress, and we encourage you to meet with them each quarter.
To find your academic advisor:
- Log into MyDU and navigate to “Student Resources” tab
- Select "Academic Resources"
- In section “Academic Advising,” click on “View Your Student Profile”
- Find current academic advisor(s) under section “Advisors”
Financial Aid and Scholarships
Financial aid packages may include grants, scholarships, loans and work-study funding. There are also scholarship and grant opportunities available specifically to students in MFJS, both from the Department and from the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (CAHSS).
Internships are an important part of the Media, Film & Journalism Studies experience.
Our internship director provides support for students, including featured opportunity lists.
Our department maintains both computer lab and video lab facilities for our undergraduate and graduate students, especially those in the Film and Production major and in the Video Production graduate emphasis. Access is limited and our faculty will help determine which classes will need access during each quarter.
Continuing students can apply for access in the first two weeks of classes and should review the Terms and Conditions document and check with faculty for any questions they have.
Film and video equipment is available for MFJS production course students and students working on independent study with a MFJS faculty member. Current students who have completed the Intro to Field Production and Editing course can request equipment online for their coursework.
