Secondary Field in VES

There are four curricular tracks in VES for students wishing to pursue a secondary field: environmental studies; film and visual studies; film/video production; and studio. Six courses are required to complete a secondary field in VES; ordinarily at least five of them must be offered in VES. The VES secondary field requirement checklist explains the requirements and is useful when planning secondary field courses.

Students do not declare a secondary field through the department as they do when applying for a concentration, though departmental approval is required for a secondary field. Students use the secondary fields web tool to indicate interest in the VES secondary field, and to record the relevant courses there.

Paula Soares, the manager of academic programs and Ruth Lingford, the director of undergraduate studies advise students considering a secondary field in VES.
