Kelly Payne, Chief Undergraduate Advisor

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!

Angela Jockers, Academic Advising Assistant

Angela Jockers

In the Undergraduate English Advising Office at UNL, I assist English and Film Studies majors with various questions related to registration, student services, and department events. As one of the designated Academic Recovery Coaches for our department, I help students by providing guidance in designing a workable plan for academic success. I also work closely with our English Student Advisory Board and our Freshman Mentoring program where I strive to offer beneficial programming and services to our undergraduate community.

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.
