    Which major would this fall under?

I'm not sure that a conventional film degree would help necessarily in this field, but I could be wrong. I've seen that there is a sports communication major, but I don't know if...

    Unrelated undergrad for film

    Hey I’m a high school student going into a science undergrad. Do you think that when I apply to USC MFA in tv and film production, the admissions officers will reject me due to my unrelated undergrad? The reason I’m going into sciences is to keep my options open for med. Thanks!
