Students can discuss the program and its requirements and declare the film studies major or minor with Dr. Balides, Program Director, during her regular office hours (without a prior appointment) or by appointment at a different time. For office hours, call the Communication Department at 504 865 5730. To schedule an appointment, students should contact Dr. Balides at firstname.lastname@example.org. Students should bring a major or minor declaration form, which can be obtained from the campus advising office, to their meeting. The Program Director signs the form and the student returns the signed form to the campus advising office.
