Across all of our efforts in teaching, research, creative activity, and service, the English program from the University of Nebraska Omaha is a vital component of the university’s strategic mission: to make students our focus, to promote academic excellence, and to engage with our community.


The Department of English at UNO works to increase the general literacy and cultural awareness of UNO students and also the citizens of Omaha and its immediate surroundings. Faculty are considerably involved in the Service Learning Academy, in area public high schools, in city- and state-wide cultural and literary societies, in public readings and lectures, in area literary competitions and a wide array of publication outlets, and at national and international venues, such as Fulbright and CLEPS.


Students who graduate with a BA from UNO’s English department have gained so much more than an appreciation of language and literature. They are community leaders whose understanding of oral and written composition, linguistic and cultural norms, and rhetoric and argumentation are applied to a wide range of occupations. English graduates have not only gone on to organize data for marketing or engineering firms, but have also started businesses, joined political campaigns, and integrated with community institutions in teaching, writing, and other fields of community involvement.

Although the skills gained in the English program at the University of Nebraska Omaha are applicable to many fields, graduates most commonly pursue and succeed in fields such as:

  • Marketing Director
  • Speech Writer
  • Technical Publications Manager
