English majors do not really take classes; we take experiences.Wendy RogersUNL English major
Most of our classes are run as small, intimate, discussion-based seminars, not large anonymous lectures. In English classes, your ideas are valued, your opinions matter. Your professor will know your name. And the experiences you undertake will be more varied than you may have imagined:
Walt Whitman · Film History · African poetry · Shakespeare · Chicano/a literature · Science fiction · Willa Cather · LGBTQ Literature and Queer Theory · Digital humanities · Native American literature · Poetry writing · Rhetorical analysis · Fiction writing · Film Criticism · Publishing and Editing · Nature writing and ecology · Sherman Alexie · Children's literature · Creative nonfiction · The Harlem Renaissance · Great Plains studies · Jane Austen · Slam poetry · German cinema · Women's and gender studies · Modern drama · Film theory

The world is not just
It's right here in Lincoln, Nebraska.
In the Department of English, we engage critically with a wide variety of experiences through imaginative reasoning—the ability to use the imagination to think hypothetically about the world in all its diversity—connecting the past, present, and future, the local and the global.
