English and/or Film Studies majors should schedule an appointment with an advisor to review their Degree Audit and to plan their classes each semester. Students may schedule an appointment to discuss any aspect of university life, including major or minor planning, career and research opportunities, internships, and graduate school preparation.

Meet Kelly Payne Chief Advisor and Lecturer

As the department’s undergraduate advisor, I assist students with all aspects of planning for graduation from making appropriate course selections to gaining relevant career experience through volunteering and internships. My priority is to help you and other English and Film Studies majors to achieve your educational goals.

The bachelor’s degree in English is a significant credential in demonstrating your ability to think critically, communicate effectively, and value the customs and literature of diverse cultures. From words to worlds, the English undergraduate program is your passport to success!
