We'll share a vintage University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO) photo each Thursday on our homepage as part of the popular "Throwback Thursday."
Check back each week for a photo celebrating UNO's history, and to learn more about what's happening on campus and in our community, and future plans for the university.
Awarded to over 22,000 students since 1951, the Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree is one of the nation’s oldest bachelor’s degrees for adult learners and is part of the University of Nebraska Omaha’s (UNO) longstanding, rich tradition of serving military and veteran students. In fact, UNO was named the nation's top public university for veterans in November 2013.
The degree provides educational opportunities for working students, those serving overseas and many whom are returning to school to complete their degrees. In January, U.S. News and World Report announced that UNO's online BGS degree is one of the top 20 bachelor’s programs in the United States.
The ability to study across various fields of study, including unique programs such as behavioral health; civic leadership; criminology and criminal justice; fire service management; gerontology and nonprofit administration, offers students a broader range of specialty classes throughout their studies. Students choose courses and areas of study to meet individual career goals, prepare for graduate study, or satisfy personal interests and aspirations.
This degree is offered through the Division of Continuing Studies in the UNO College of Public Affairs and Community Service (CPACS).
