AFA in CINEMA  (offered at Alexandria and Woodbridge campuses) 

  1. Enroll in the General Studies Associate of Science (AS) program until the AFA in Cinema is officially offered.

  3. If a new student, enroll in the first semester Cinema AFA courses, including: CST120, CST115 or 126, CST151, ENG111, SDV101 Orientation to Fine Arts, and a social sciences elective. These will also count toward the General Studies Associate of Science (AS) program.
