The University of Memphis (Department of Communication)

The University of Memphis is a learner-centered metropolitan research university providing high quality educational experiences while pursuing new knowledge through research, artistic expression, and interdisciplinary and engaged scholarship.

The Department of Communication at The University of Memphis offers both a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts Degree in Communication with a concentration in Film and Video Production. These concentrations combine technical instruction with courses in motion picture studies to provide students with the skills necessary to function in the multifaceted world of audiovisual production. Our approach to media practice is broad enough to address the needs of the independent artist as well as those who wish to enter the industry, and the program is small enough to ensure that each student receives personal attention from the faculty.

The Department provides production equipment and facilities for beginning to advanced students. These include: 16mm motion picture cameras (Arriflex, Cinema Products, Bolex, and Bell and Howell), professional lighting and sound packages, three film editing rooms, two audio labs equipped with Pro-tools digital workstations, digital video cameras, non-linear video editing stations (Final Cut Pro), a fully equipped television studio, and a 50,000-watt FM radio station. The College of Communication and Fine Arts also houses a 24-track digital recording studio and a computer graphics lab.

The faculty is comprised of experienced, academically and professionally trained filmmakers and scholars whose work has been broadcast nationally on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, the A&E Network and Court TV, and has won numerous awards, including; three Peabody Awards; two duPont Awards; five national Emmys; two regional Emmys; the Erik Barnouw Award; seven CINE Golden Eagles; a Writers Guild Award; an Edward R. Murrow Award; an NAACP Image Award nomination; and many festival awards and screenings.
