The Film Studies program from University of North Carolina Wilmington teaches students to understand the history, aesthetics, business, and social significance of motion pictures and provides practical training in artistic and technical aspects of filmmaking.
The UNCW Film Studies department is founded on the principle that the study of cinema and the artistic production of motion pictures complement one another, and all film studies majors perform substantial work in both areas.
In addition to preparing students for work in the film industry and in film-related areas, the courses in the Film Studies Department develop skills that students can apply to a variety of disciplines and professions outside of film, such as skills of textual analysis, critical thinking, persuasive and creative writing, visual design, research, computer use, and oral presentation.
Film Studies courses cover all modes of cinematic expression: narrative, documentary, avant garde/experimental, and animation. The critical studies curriculum includes courses in film analysis, history, rhetoric and theory, and a wide range of world cinema.
The film production curriculum encompasses every aspect of the integrated film production process, including screenwriting, directing, producing, cinematography, camera operation, lighting, sound recording and design, 3D and 2D animation, and interactive media.
