University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG Department of Broadcasting & Cinema)

The Department of Broadcasting and Cinema was officially founded in July of 2000, having existed since 1975 under the umbrella of the University’s Communication and Theatre Departments. Dr. John Lee Jellicorse, who played an integral part in the creation and development of the Broadcasting and Cinema curriculum at UNC Greensboro, would become its inaugural Department Head. In establishing the new Department, the College of Arts and Sciences, Graduate School, and Department of Theatre agreed that the MFA in Drama with a Concentration in Film and Video Production, instituted in 1983, would continue to be administered under the jurisdiction of the new Department of Broadcasting and Cinema. The department would also oversee undergraduate majors in Film/Video Production and Media Studies, both offered since the mid-1970s as part of the Communication and Theatre programs at UNCG.

The mission of the Broadcasting and Cinema Department at UNC Greensboro is to produce exemplary liberal arts graduates who can think critically and creatively, who can communicate clearly and effectively in oral and written discourse, who can skillfully and ethically employ contemporary media technology, and who are knowledgeable of the history and theory of film and electronic media.

Student work produced at UNC Greensboro has earned over thirty major national and international awards, including those presented by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (five Student Emmy Awards); the Baltimore Film Festival; the Chicago Film Festival; the Council on International Nontheatrical Events (CINE Golden Eagle Award); the National Educational Media Network (Bronze Apple Award); the International Du Court Metrage De Mons; the International Television Association; the Margaret Mead Film Festival; the James River Film Festival; and the University Film and Video Association. UNCG student work has likewise been featured in an array of film festivals and broadcast venues throughout the world, including the South By Southwest Film Festival; the Milano Film Festival; the Crossroads Film Festival; the IndieMemphis Film Festival; WUNC-TV (North Carolina PBS); WSCE-TV (South Carolina PBS); and the FAIF International Film Festival in Hollywood. In addition, scholarships, grants, and competitive internships awarded to UNC Greensboro graduates include the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship; Eastman Kodak Scholarship; the Cannes Film Festival Kodak Internship; and the UFVA’s Carol Fielding Production Grant. Graduates of UNC Greensboro's MFA in Film and Video Production teach at universities across the country.
