Academic advising on degree requirements and related matters is done by staff and faculty advisors from the Departments of Film, Television, and Digital Media and Information Studies. All academic actions and petitions are considered by the appropriate standing faculty and program committees. Students meet with their advisor for program planning prior to the beginning of each quarter. Matters that cannot be resolved by the individual faculty advisor are reviewed by the Committee to Administer the Interdepartmental Degree Program (CAIDP). Advising on professional matters such as employment and internships, and general counseling are provided by the director and coordinator of the MIAS Program and relevant professional staff from the UCLA Film and Television Archive.
