English Major Concentrations

As an English or Film Studies major, you design your own concentration - a program of study based on your areas of interest, organized around a controlling theme or topic. If your interests span multiple disciplines, your concentration might even include a course from another department.

English at the University of Nebraska can be generally divided into six different research and teaching areas. Though your undergraduate concentration will be tailored to your specific interests, concentrations often fall within one or more of these areas.

Choosing a Concentration

To choose a concentration, contact the English & Film Studies Advising Office early in your program. In consultation with your academic advisor and faculty in your area of interest, you'll select four courses above the 299 level that fit your chosen theme or topic.
