Film Studies, Theater (CFPA)




Why you chose your major

I've always been mystified by the film industry. My dream job would be to work on a movie set animation, visual effects, working the camera, or even working in the art department. Film Studies gives me the tools I need to explore the context of films, analyze and critique them, and create films of my own.

Favorite course

ENGL 373 Film Theory and Criticism. There's a lot to know about our world and the human beings who created and continue to create it. This course is a good starting place for that journey.

Research, education abroad, or internship experience

Research is the wellspring of the Film Studies major. My research focuses on the criticism, theory, and aesthetics of film, television, video, and other moving image media.

Other involvement

Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts Student Advisory Board. This is a student organization that serves as a liaison between students and the college deans, faculty and staff.

Why you chose Nebraska

There is no place like University of Nebraska.

Student Ambassadors group

Student Ambassadors are undergraduate students who talk to prospective students, parents, alumni, and the general public about the college.
