One-on-one advising for your overall success at Nebraska—personal, academic, and professional.

English and film studies majors should plan to meet with their assigned academic advisor at least once every semester before you register for classes, and anytime you have a question. English and film studies minors and students considering either as a major or minor are welcome, too.

English Student Advisory Board

The English Student Advisory Board (ESAB) mentors, promotes, and represents undergraduate English and film studies students in the Department of English. Advisory Board members assist the academic advisor and undergraduate chair with recruitment and retention activities hosted by the department, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

Students who participate in the ESAB develop personal leadership, mentorship, and communication skills and have the opportunity to represent the department and the university in a professional capacity.
