We are all concerned about the quality of the environment that surrounds us. The field of Environmental Science recognizes that finding solutions to the environmental challenges facing our society requires individuals with experience and training in a broad array of disciplines. Success in the field requires not only a scientific background to develop technical solutions but also an understanding of the social and economic implications of solutions and decisions.
The Environmental Science Program at UNO offers interdisciplinary undergraduate degrees that provide students with training in the breadth of disciplines required to understand the complex nature of solving environmental challenges. Students acquire the scientific expertise as well as the necessary background in economics, public policy and law to effectively pursue a career relating to the environment. The Environmental Science Program is committed to preparing students for careers helping to meet the environmental challenges facing us locally, nationally and globally.
