Primary Function of Organizational Unit
The UNCW Film Studies Department prepares students to participate in a world increasingly shaped by moving pictures. Through courses that offer a foundation for understanding cinema—and its relation to culture, history, technology, and aesthetics—Film Studies teaches students to create and analyze moving images, to produce research, and to make art. One of the premiere departments at UNCW, Film Studies combines critical studies with production and recently launched integrated MA and MFA programs. The department draws on the rich social and cultural heritage of the coastal city of Wilmington. Film festivals and conferences, local and visiting scholars and filmmakers, and an assortment of independent and international film screenings together create a vibrant film community. The Film Studies department hosts the Film Matters journal and has a robust working relationship with area filmmaking professionals and EUE Screen Gems Studios. A Research 2 public institution, UNCW is consistently recognized for academic excellence by publications such as U. S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review.
