Fall 2021 Major Exploration Week Events
Major Problems: Creating Solutions Across Disciplines
You might think that choosing a major determines which kinds of conversations you can join or problems you can solve. The truth is that all majors have something to offer in response to the problems we face. The question is, what perspectives on those problems draw you in the most? What approaches and methods inspire you to add your talents?
What do we mean? Find out at “Major Problems: Creating Solutions Across Disciplines.” During these two panels, faculty from majors across UNO will share how their field prepares them to respond to the complicated issues of our time—issues that require multiple viewpoints to find solutions.
These panel discussions encompass the purpose of Major Exploration Week: a chance for students to see how different majors work in the real world.
